I would like to assure the editors of The 74 that I think a students' union is a great idea, and that it's something that should be applied widely in schools, colleges and universities everywhere. Indeed, I think it should become so widespread that it would be inconceivable that anyone would think of it as a novel or unexpected idea. And yes, I think the powers of a students' union should be real, and that students should "negotiate their class sizes, workloads and class-time limits" and even "take control of our educations and our schools."
