The great battle between public sector unions and the average citizen is often about money. But when it comes to teachers unions, the battle is about public safety. The safety of our children.
It is an issue in New York and it is an issue in California, where Anderson Cooper 360 takes us into the dirty and dishonest battle over SB 1530.
Here is what LAUSD Superintedent John Deasy had to say over the defeat of SB 1530.
LAUSD Superintedent John Deasy blamed powerful lobbying forces for the bill’s rejection. “When we want students’ rights protected, maybe we need a union.”
Maybe when teachers have a union and students have a union and parents have a union, all the unions will be able to get together and agree to swiftly fire a teacher guilty of sexual abuse. But the message of parents taking on teachers unions even seems to resonating in Hollywood.
The movie’s title. “Won’t Back Down.” Teachers unions may still hold millions of children hostage, but they won’t be holding them for long.
