Huge Scandal Rocks Teacher’s Union

We have the facts here.

Every time I think my estimation of teacher’s unions couldn’t be lower, they prove me wrong. Over the weekend, the San Francisco teacher’s union announced it had reached a deal with the school district to bring back seniors starting this Friday, May 14th. Remember that date because it’s important.

Returning to schools Friday could potentially mean students would have just over two weeks of school before schools close up at the beginning of June. Except that’s not what the union and the district have in mind. What they are actually doing is just a straight cash grab.

In what some are calling a blatant money grab, the deal between the district and teachers union will bring seniors back “for at least one day before the end of the school year,” so the city’s public schools can qualify for $12 million in state reopening funds…
Each cohort of students would have two teachers or staff supervising them on campus. Activities might include “end of high school conversations,” or “college and career exploration,” said district officials, who were still working out the cohort size.
Only two high school sites would be made available to seniors, meaning most who do return won’t be at their own school. As of Monday, it was unclear how many students would accept the offer, with the district polling families to see how many of the 4,000 12th graders want to return.

So the students mostly won’t be at their own schools and won’t get any instruction when they show up. They also won’t be there for the full two weeks but at most 1-2 days per week. It’s literally just a time to hang out and shoot the breeze in a classroom.

And the reason this is being opened up this Friday? That’s because the requirement for getting any of the state money is May 15th, i.e. this Saturday. This is literally a plan to bilk the taxpayers by union members and the school district. The state assemblyman who sponsored the legislation says this is cheating:

“It definitely doesn’t meet the spirit of the law,” he said. “Kids were supposed to come back in person. Kids were supposed to come back to learn.”
The goal of the legislation was to get “all the kids back.” But specifically, the law requires opening school for entire middle or high school grade before May 15, “and keeping that grade open all the way to June 2,” Ting said.

I think it’s even worse than it sound. The kids who come back to this faux in-person schooling (where they won’t be taught anything) will presumably be doing that instead of whatever online schooling they are supposed to be doing on those days. So it sounds as if this will actually pull kids away from remote school so they can show up for fake school in person.

Maybe I’m wrong about that. The article doesn’t say and neither does the FAQ about this plan on the district’s website, but I’m not sure how else it could work. Still, it’s pretty revealing that we’ve finally found the one thing that will bring some teachers unions back to classrooms. It’s not the suffering of kids or their families, it’s loads of taxpayer money.

Finally, Jill Tucker’s story ends with this little factoid which highlights just how absurd the union’s refusal to return to classrooms has been. About 20,000 students and staff returned to elementary schools last month. In three weeks there have been 20 cases of COVID among those 20,000 people. None of them, not one, was found to be the result of in-school transmission of the virus.

  1. What? that they are democraps minions and a mafia union run organization. Oh well there time is calculated also now that their true colors are showing.

  2. This whole thing is disgusting! This is not helping the students, this is only showing the greed of the teachers. These teachers should be ashamed of themselves & should be fired. Also, the school board who is going along with this.

  3. Aren’t these school “unions” lovely?? All they are after is MONEY — that’s why they “contribute” so lavishly to political parties. How about the students — they (the unions and teachers?) could care less. Note their CONTINUING objection to any type of parental control (money to student rather than school district) they KNOW this would (will) lead to their DOWNFALL. Isn’t it about time ?????

  4. WE knew all the time the unions were in their positions, ( all of them, all equally), only to grab cash!
    The ONLY thing they are teaching is how to STEAL MONEY from the taxpayer, and give nothing in exchange.

  5. It’s shocking and inexplicable that teachers unions would be in school for one day before they closed down the schools again! The closedown is for no explicable reason and one has to wonder just why they’re doing this! It makes no sense and keeps students out of school for several more days, if not longer! As a former teacher, I find it totally out of line!

  6. After 24 years on a school board (thankfully not in CA), I had no doubt that teachers by and large weren’t in it for “the children” as you hear them cry all the time. This however takes the cake. I think the legislation needs to act to head off a $12MM robbery.

  7. The teachers I know are pretty much unqualified and most were high school C students at best. Now they are just taking advantage of the tax paying public with little to no oversight of their performance.

  8. I spent 35 years in the classroom. I was never a member of a teachers’ union. I am totally disgusted by the individuals today who call themselves teachers. I loved my students and wanted the best for them, as did most of the teachers with whom I worked.

  9. Teacher’s Unions were never interested in quality education for the students, even though individual teachers might be. The Unions just want to continue to feed at the public trough, and produce a bunch of brain-washed idiots for the politically left in the future.

  10. These teachers need to be fired for stealing. Break up this union for illegal activities: lying about students attending just to get money. These teachers are a disgrace to teachers everywhere. SHAME on YOU ALL!

  11. Ah, a “union job” = high pay and very little work. These teachers are teaching the public just how destructive their greed is.

  12. So. What do you know? Teachers are CROOKS too. I wonder why most of my medical personnel (especially doctors) have names that I cannot pronounce at first. They are foreign names. Education seems to be more important in countries other that the US. Basics are taught. Not this CRAP of critical race theory.

  13. Do like Reagan did with the Air Traffic Controllers . Fire the teachers , for not doing there jobs , then there isn’t any need of these smart ass unions !! However Biden won’t do it , he would loose a bunch of money for that Crack Head Kid of his !!

  14. Teachers Unions are NOT for the children.It is a teachers club of lazy,Anti American leeches who couldn’t care less about the kids,learning or anything related to the students

  15. Just more proof democommies and unions suck – -a bunch of self-serving thieves and grifters. There was a time decades ago, when unions were a good thing and actually served a good purpose “for” the workers themselves, but then the unions figured out how to “milk the system” to benefit themselves.
