Dereliction of Duty: 18 Detroit Schools Close Down so Teachers Can Attend Union Rally

If I were a parent I would be furious that these teachers care more about their union than they do my kids… but that is exactly what is going on in Detroit as 18 schools have been shut down today so teachers can play union games instead of doing their job teaching kids.

This is intolerable[1]…

Detroit Public Schools closed 18 schools today as hundreds of teachers headed to Lansing to rally against Gov. Rick Snyder’s intended changes for the district.

“The union is up on its feet, ready to do what it takes to support our students and fight for their right to an equal, quality education,” Steve Conn, president of the Detroit Federation of Teachers, said in a news release.

The union said in the release that teachers were going to the Capitol to “express teachers’ support for public education and determined opposition to Gov. Snyder’s efforts to expand charters and the EAA [Education Achievement Authority] in Detroit.”

There should never, ever be unions for public employees. All government unions should again be illegal like they ALL were before 1958.
