Ken Fones-Wolf consulted by national media on WV teacher strike
Later that week, Dr. Fones-Wolf challenged the image that Senate President Mitch Carmichael created by using the term "union bosses" to describe the strike organizers in an article published by WCHS 8, a station out of Charleston, WV. "These are not un-democratic organizations," he said. "The NEA, AFT are both democratic organizations. They put things to a vote. They listen to their members. So, this notion that some union bosses are coming in telling them how to act just doesn't reflect the reality of the situation."
