California Teachers Union Putting Our Kids at Risk

I usually do not post about politics, but when my friend Christine from DatesToDiapers.com shared her heart about something in her state, I had to allow her to write a guest post about it.  Please feel free to comment about your thoughts, this is a very heartfelt and well-written post!

Empty swingset

As a mom of seven, and a parent of four children in public school here in California, I’m disgusted with how special interest groups like the teachers’ union always put our children last, behind their bloated paychecks and pension benefits.

But, now they’ve gone too far. Earlier this year, the California Teachers Association killed a bill in the legislature that would have made it easier to fire teachers who are known child molesters!

It’s almost too hard to believe, right? Well, read for yourself what one Los Angeles area teacher did to his blindfolded students – Associated Press story – and how the teachers union conspired to keep perverts like him in the classroom – LA Weekly article.
California isn’t alone in having a teachers union that protects sexual deviants – New York is battling a similar problem.
This is why we need reform like Prop 32, which is on the November ballot in California. We have to stop the special interest money that keeps these groups powerful and detached from doing what’s best for our children.
Of course the opponents of the measure are spreading lies about how cops, firemen, teachers, et al are against 32, but keep in mind it’s only the union leadership that is against 32. I know plenty of teachers who don’t like what their union does and certainly don’t want sexual predators in our classrooms!
See for yourself what California Prop 32 will do, it’s very strait forward.  And join our Facebook Group “California Parents for Reform” where we discuss this and other issues facing our schools and families.

    Unbelievable (but it really is believable-if that makes sense)!!! Protecting our kids from ALL predators should be #1 and anything that makes it easier to eliminate the problem I am for!!!

      Thank you! I totally agree Jennifer. When Christine told me about this problem I was shocked it was even an issue.
