I believe there is a difference between rank-and-file teachers and the leadership of radical teachers’ unions. The trouble is, the rank-and-file sits idly by as the radicals embarrass them, time and time again. Perhaps we’ve reached the point where the rank-and-file can rightfully be accused of being complicit of such behavior.
Why aren’t teachers angrily denouncing a recent resolution passed by the California Federation of Teachers in which the union "reaffirms support for death row journalist Mumia Abu-Jamal"?
The American Federation of Teachers, led by Randi Weingarten, has to date issued no statement in opposition to this offensive resolution.
And what does the AFL-CIO, the parent to the AFT think? More importantly, what do the police members of the AFL-CIO think? After all, Abu-Jamal was convicted of killing one of their own.
Or don’t they care?
At what point will the teachers’ unions be more concerned with the pitiful state of public education than they are about the fate of a convicted cop killer, or other unrelated issues like gay rights, national health care or American foreign policy?
Mumia Abu-Jamal, a hero of hardcore radical leftists – to some because he executed a police officer – does not deserve the honor and respect of teachers. It sends the wrong message to children. But the fact that the union would take the time to pass such a resolution shows the purpose of the union: to pass a radical agenda that has little if anything to do with education.
Mumia Abu Jamal has supporters across the nation. He is popular with some students. He is a cause for the Black Panthers because he is one of the most famous. I predict he will be high on the Obama Holder list for a last minute pardon before Obama leaves the whitehouse. Holder has a history of freeing terrorists. The assasination of Officer Dan Faulkner by Jamal means nothing to the suppporters of the movement.
Organize April 4th No Business As Usual
Day of Action
April 4th came and went here in California and nobody noticed a No Business As Usual Day of Action unless it meant No Teaching as Usual Day of Inaction.
Would you want these people teaching your children?
I agree 100%
I do expect the Obamanation, Attorney Racist Holder and the entire Obamanation Justice Department to do everything they can to thwart justice in the Mumia case.
See post 25.
What do you want to do when you grow up Mumia?
Be a death row journalist.
Mrs. Eagle was a school teacher here in California for 10 years before illness forced her to retire. For the most part, there is not a huge difference between MOST of the teachers and The Teachers' Unions.
All but a couple of her fellow teachers were your garden variety brain-dead Liberal Obamatons.
The main Homeschool Ping List handles the homeschool-specific articles. I hold both the Homeschool Ping List and the Another Reason to Homeschool Ping list. Please freepmail me to let me know if you would like to be added to or removed from either list, or both.
It is time that conservatives work to shutter all the government K-12 schools, raze the buildings, and salt the earth.
Damn, that hadn’t even crossed my mind.
I didn’t think of this but I think you are correct. I hope it doesn’t happen but won’t be shocked if it does.
I didn’t know that California had a shortage of cop killers who say they didn’t do it. It’s a shame that they have to outsource to another state.
Of course. Public employee unions have never been about working conditions. They should be abolished but it'll never get done in the states that need it the most like CA.
Huckabeeee could offer his personal experience and expertise on this.
“Who would put their children under the influence of people who God has abandoned?”
That is the biggest question in this discussion...
Psalms 1:1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
As parents we need to take back our responsibility to raise/educate our children. And we need to do it in a way that will lead to them being blessed and not corrupted...
1 Corinthians 15:33-34 Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character.” Come back to your senses as you ought, and stop sinning; for there are some who are ignorant of God - I say this to your shame.
