I have no problem with the action being undertaken by the Anoka-Hennepin Teacher's Union.

They are simply being honest for a change and saying that their priorities are increasing pay and protecting jobs - it is not about the kids or the education they provide for the kids.

Just remember, the next time a Teacher's Union spokesperson says: "it for the children." they are lying and pimping the children to get more money for themselves.

Anoka-Hennepin teachers stop after-hours work

Decision to strictly adhere to contract comes amid struggling talks among Anoka-Hennepin officials, union and mediator to reach deal

Anoka-Hennepin teachers, frustrated about a lack of progress in contract talks with the state’s largest school district, will now do only what work can be completed during the school day and is required by their contract.

That means the district’s nearly 3,000 teachers will stop doing work after hours, including grading papers they haven’t graded during the day, checking e-mails, tweaking lesson plans and voluntarily attending after-school events. It’s called a “work-to-rule” action.

The teachers unions have never taken the high road on anything.

The Angry White Guy speaks! But he apparently does not understand what he read.

I said I don't have a problem with their tactic. Why are you not celebrating?

As always, I would tell AWG/FBG to keep a sharp eye out for those RIF trucks in his neighborhood.
