I love teachers. My dad taught, many of my friends teach, some in my family currently teach. Hell, I was a teacher.
I love great teachers. We should fire the horrible ones, not the bad ones, just the horrible ones, but that’s a post for another day.
My beef is the Union. That organization that represents teachers and bargains and negotiates for them. If you ever had any doubt, any doubt what so ever, that Unions not only don’t care about kids, but hate children, here it is. In all its glory, how Unions are power hungry monsters:
To the relief of college-bound seniors, Lakeville high school teachers will once again write letters of recommendation under a deal reached this week between their local union and the school district.
The agreement ends a standoff that began two weeks ago during contract negotiations between the union and district. Hoping to spur a settlement, some teachers began refusing to write recommendation letters, among other measures requested by their union.
The Union requested teachers stop writing letters of recommendation for seniors trying to get into college.
Power. Pure and unapologetic power. Unions do not exist for the benefit of the children. They exploit children. And teachers. And you.
Measure teachers. Fire shitty ones. Reward great ones. And abolish teachers unions.
