Charter School Teacher Fired For Talking Union

-- by Dave Johnson

At the Edwize blog: Do charter schools need unions? about charter school teachers in New York being fired for mentioning the 'U' word.

Fortunately things turned out all right for one teacher, because she was so highly regarded:

Nichole applied for a position teaching English at one of New York City’s very best public high schools, Brooklyn Tech, which hired her last week. Having quickly landed on her feet, Nichole now says “I will never again work in a school where I don’t belong to a union.” Her dismissed colleague was hired at a top private New York City school.

I thought there was a law that protected employees from being fired in retaliation for union activities, even if the company wasn't unionized.

Bush, the all powerful, all seeing and omnipresent boogie man. Manipulating the entirely Democraticly run state of New York from his lair in Washington.

Dave, do you actually not realize how silly you sound?

What shocked me was the principal at the school calling that poor teacher a racist!!! Imagine someone resorting to the race card when they disagree with another person. What type of person would do such a thing???
