UW-Madison's Julie Underwood examines the Supreme Court Janus case and its implications for teachers unions in her latest "Under the Law" column for Phi Delta Kappan magazine. "Janus v. American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees," concerns the issue of whether mandatory fair share fees are constitutional in public employment contracts. "Although the parties are neither educators nor schools, this case is of interest to all unions who represent public workers, including teachers and other public school employees. It boils down to whether the government, as an employer, can require nonunion workers to contribute to the union," Underwood writes in her explanation.

Research from UW-Madison's Nick Hillman was cited by the St. Louis NAACP about performance-based public funding for universities in Missouri. The St. Louis NAACP said in a news release that Missouri is underfunding its two historically black institutions, Harris-Stowe State University in St. Louis and Lincoln University in Jefferson City. In his research cited by the NAACP, Hillman reported that the Missouri universities that have seen the lowest budgetary gains over the last 40 years are the universities with higher percentages of black students and students receiving financial need-based Pell Grants.
