Two important victories have recently been reported for teachers and education in the US, both centring on New York, its financial capital.
Firstly, teachers in New York, working for the global education corporation, Kaplan, have won union rights and proper contracts after a long struggle. Despite the fact that the company was making multi-million dollar profits, teachers were kept on part-time contracts with no holiday pay and a salary only slightly above the minimum wage.
