In the first episode of the AEI Education Podcast, host Nat Malkus discusses the Janus V. AFCSME opinion, in which the Supreme Court ruled that public sector unions may no longer require non-members to pay agency fees.

First, Nat talks to the original filer of this case, Governor of Illinois Bruce Rauner, about why he thinks the opinion is such an important victory for taxpayers and for workers’ rights. Then, Katharine Strunk, Professor at Michigan State, joins Nat to discuss what the decision means for education policy and for the future of teacher unions.
