I have seven kids, four of whom attend a public charter school here in California. It was recently brought to my attention that 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 and how the teachers union conspired to keep perverts like him in the classroom.
It’s disgusting how special interest groups like the teachers’ union always put our children last, behind their bloated paychecks and pension benefits. But, 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!
I invite you to join our Facebook Group ““California Parents for Reform” where we discuss this and other issues facing our schools and families. And, see for yourself what California Prop 32 will do It’s very strait forward, but ask questions. Information is power.
