    all sorts of stats have come out about Wisconsins education system recently, but I have yet to see how its proven that the higher scores / great education relates to teachers being unionized

    This doesn't have anything to do with race.

    This is more so to inform about where Wisconsin currently stands when it comes to education. Whether you agree with the Union or Governor Walker, one cannot disagree that Wisconsin's education system is doing fantastic.

    As the saying goes when it comes to policy debates, you can choose your own opinion but you cannot choose your own facts.

    right but it seems to just be a distraction from the union issue

    The more whites and Asians in a school, the better the grades.

    Provided that those whites are not white southern evangelicals.
