Teachers Held Hostage
Original post made
on May 29, 2009
My elementary son came home today with a note from his teacher, asking me to please vote for measuure G to save her job. Why are teachers putting kids in the middle? My neighbor who is a teacher said that the union and district made a deal not to give final notices to teachers until June 5th instead of June 1st. Sounds to me that the district is holding teachers hostage, which is forcing them to do any tactics possible to get measure G passed. I was going to vote yes, but after what has happened this last week, I AM VOTING NO, that is 3 NO votes in our house now! If GM unions can make cuts to salary, then why cann't the teacher's union freeze salaries for a year?
