CA Teachers Union holds L.A. students hostage
The California Globe brings us the infuriating demands of the California Teachers Union. Not content to provide nearly the worst education to Los Angeles children they want more, much, much more. In order to return to the work of indoctrinating California’s children they have a list of demands that can only be called insane.
In what appears to be a labor union power play, the United Teachers Los Angeles union announced Friday that Los Angeles Unified District schools effectively cannot reopen unless certain conditions are met: privately operated publicly funded charter schools are shut down, police are defunded, Medicare-for-All government-run health care is passed, a statewide wealth tax is implemented, housing for homeless is fully funded, “financial Support for Undocumented Students and Families,” and they want a federal bailout because “the CARES and HEROES Acts provided funding for K-12, both fell far short of what would be needed to rescue districts and state and local governments.” The source cited for this claim is the National Education Association, the largest labor union and special interest group in the United States.
Why, they’ve even authored a report proving how badly Los Angeles, and by extension, California needs to commit sepuku so they can get back to work doing what they do best, filling kids’ empty heads with cutting edge Progressive twaddle and preparing future Californians to be multifaceted intersectional victims, welfare cases and prison inmates.
The UTLA just published a research paper, “The Same Storm, but Different Boats: The Safe and Equitable Conditions for Starting LAUSD in 2020-21,” explaining their demands, most of which have little to do with educating students. UTLA wants local authorities to “keep school campuses closed when the semester begins on Aug. 18.”
I’ve seen unverified reports that President Trump is planning an executive order to divert federal funding to allow fast tracking the certification of non-union teachers. Good, I say. The California Teachers Unions have gotten too big for their britches and need to get their backsides tanned.
