My wife is still a voting WTU member, and I looked at the four slates that were described in the mailing that came to our house. I am a bit disappointed, and I am also fearful that due to the fact that there are three slates running against the utterly incompetent and undemocratic George Parker, they will probably siphon votes from each other, and thus, Parker will earn yet another undeserved term.
All of the other slates have some folks with some integrity, and some people I know nothing about. I wish they had coalesced their forces, no matter how much they may have needed to hold their noses about some matter or the other.
On a similar note, it is wonderful to see that our brother and sister teachers in Baltimore, MD had the courage to reject the Rhee-like contract that Andres Alonso, the school chief there, had tried to get them to agree to. They were wise enough to see that the bonuses that were promised were merely mirages. Here is an article in the Baltimore Sun on the matter.
