Teachers Unions are waging a war on our kids!

Why do they hate kids?

Via EAG News:

When it comes to the legal question of whether the East Baton Rouge Parish school district had the right to publish the names of teachers who were recently rated “highly effective” under the state’s new evaluation system, our guess is as good as yours.

But the real issue is why the East Baton Rouge Federation of Teachers is protesting the move in the first place.

It’s because teachers unions still want to the public to believe that all teachers are equally effective and should be compensated that way.

It’s a ridiculous argument that the union is pushing to protect its members who aren’t making the grade. Teachers unions have a socialistic approach to compensation – they believe everyone should be on the same negotiated pay scale, regardless of their value to the school district or its students.

We suspect taxpayers would disagree.

The school district recently upset the union by purchasing a full-page ad in local newspaper, recognizing those teachers who were rated highly effective after the first year of the state’s new teacher evaluation system, according to TheAdvocate.com.

The ad purchase was simply the district’s effort to publicly reward its best teachers, and provide an incentive for others to improve.

But the union is protesting, claiming the ad violated state law.

There was a time when unions were needed, but face it, they are nothing but cesspools of corruption now.

Teachers Union VP Gun rights supporters are going to to Hell

Leaders of the National Education Association and the American Federation of Teachers are among those leftists who were hoping for strong new anti-firearm legislation from Washington, D.C.

And the very much hate the National Rifle Association, the group that keeps fighting off such measures.

NEA Vice President Lily Eskelsen Garcia even believes she looked into their souls and determined that NRA leaders and supporters “are going to hell.”

“I’m not an ordained minister, I’m not a theologian, but these guys are going to hell,” she said at the annual Netroots Nation conference last week, according to Mercury News.

“We have to make those senators as frightened of us as they are of the gun lobby,” she reportedly said. “Shame on us if we give one inch to the gun lobby. They got where they are because they never give up. … Now the movement is us; we are the ones we were waiting for.”

The Left does not grasp that the NRA is millions of Americans who care about their right to self-defense. The Left sees only their totalitarian designs

 

Teachers Unions outraged at thought of arming teachers

The Communist influence in the Teachers Unions is showing Zip at Weasel Zippers notes that a Gallup poll shows a majority of Americans support the idea of armed teachers

Nobody is proposing every teacher carry a loaded gun on a holster, they recommend several people working at a school have access to a firearm in case some lunatic starts shooting. Seems reasonable to me and according to Gallup, 64% of Americans agree with the idea.

Via WaTi:

..the nation’s two biggest teachers unions warned Thursday that would be a disastrous idea that sends the wrong message to children.

“Some are actually proposing bringing more guns in, turning our educators into objects of fear and increasing the danger in our schools. Guns have no place in our schools. Period,” reads a rare joint statement from the presidents of the National Education Association and American Federation of Teachers.

In their letter, Dennis Van Roekel of the NEA and Randi Weingarten of the AFT called the idea of arming teachers “astounding and disturbing,” saying it runs counter to educators’ vow to provide safe and secure public schools.

In the days following the tragic massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., several high-profile political figures — including Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell and Rep. Louie Gohmert, Texas Republican — have suggested that instructors or principals be given firearms. They would kept in secure locations and available only to school leaders, who would use them in the event a gunman enters the building or in the case of some other extreme threat to students.

Former Education Secretary Bill Bennett has also voiced support for the idea.

“Suppose the principal at Sandy Hook Elementary who was killed lunging at the gunman was instead holding a firearm and was well-trained to use it. Would the result have been different? Or suppose you had been in that school when the killer entered, would you have preferred to be armed?” Mr. Bennett wrote in a recent column for CNN.com. “Evidence and common sense suggest yes.”

So, these unions, who I bet do not speak for many of the teachers they claim to represent, would prefer that teachers not be given an option to protect themselves and their students? Apparently so. Evidence shows, overwhelmingly, that Americans with concealed carry permits are incredibly responsible and safe, but the unions, being Leftist are vehemently opposed to allowing such people to help secure our schools. this is sad, but not surprising. Unions like the NEA and AFT have become servants of Leftist ideology rather than teachers. And Leftist ideology loathes armed citizens, and ultimately, individuals being responsible for their own protection. The Left being the Collectivists they are, believe that we ought to be reliant upon government for everything. Gun ownership challenges that, and the Left cannot stand that.

Nation’s Second-Largest Teachers’ Union Hires Militant Communist And 9/11 Truther – Weasel Zippers

Via Independent Sentinel:

The American Federation of Teachers (AFT) is a national union headquartered in Washington, D.C., and is affiliated with the Socialist, thuggish American Federation of Labor–Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO). The AFT joined with the NEA to form an NEAFT Partnership in 2001. AFL-CIO affiliation is optional for them since that was always a sticking point. The AFT and NEA collaboration was charted to strengthen the organizations’ abilities to buy politicians’ votes and to negotiate favorable

Hiring radicals at the AFT is nothing new. Albert Shanker, the AFT leader who died in 1997, was an avowed Socialist all his life.contracts in the twenty-first century.

Now the AFT has hired a Socialist, Shaun Richman, who is also a Truther and Osama bin Laden apologist. [Sorry, but I think that he needs psychological help with that mindset.] Shaun Richman, the new deputy director of organizing for the AFT, gained his experience organizing for the Socialist Party USA.
