Teacher Union President Says it’s OK That Kids Missed School Because They Learned Difference Between a Riot and a Protest

Teacher Union President Says it’s OK That Kids Missed School Because They Learned Difference Between a Riot and a Protest

“Education is political. People don’t want to say that, but it is.”

These are the people who are teaching your children. As I said recently, if I had kids I would pull them out of public school today.

Los Angeles Magazine Gives Union President the Profile She’s Earned

Something’s spreading through newsrooms and it’s not the coronavirus.

Soon after Emma Green of The Atlantic challenged the well-worn talking points of NEA President Becky Pringle, we get Jason McGahan of Los Angeles Magazine going several steps further in an exclusive interview with United Teachers Los Angeles President Cecily Myart-Cruz. The piece is titled, “Cecily Myart-Cruz’s Hostile Takeover of L.A.’s Public Schools.”

Here are a few of the more pungent quotes from Myart-Cruz:

– “There is no such thing as learning loss. Our kids didn’t lose anything. It’s OK that our babies may not have learned all their times tables. They learned resilience. They learned survival. They learned critical-thinking skills. They know the difference between a riot and a protest. They know the words insurrection and coup.”

– “It is not radical to ask for ethnic studies. It is not radical to ask for childcare. It’s not radical to ask for police-free schools so that students don’t feel criminalized. That is not radical; that’s just fact.”

– “Education is political. People don’t want to say that, but it is.”

– “Reopening schools without…a broader improvement of schools will be unsafe and will only deepen…racial and class inequalities.”

– “You can recall the Governor. You can recall the school board. But how are you going to recall me?”

Teachers’ unions are the single largest impediment to the improvement of our children’s education.

They squeeze all the funding they can out of the education budget for themselves, and their dues pay off the elected officials (our governor, for example) who are supposed to keep them in check. They politicize the schools while hiding that fact from the parents.

They have been the largest obstacle to keeping the schools open (or reopening them) during the pandemic, because they are still paid while schools are closed.

    “Teachers’ unions are the single largest impediment to the improvement of our children’s education.”

    The best way to resolve this is for the reasonable union members to “opt out” from paying dues ala JANUS vs AFSCME. That SCOTUS ruling allows every member of a public employees union, including teachers, to cease paying dues immediately, whether you are in a “right to work” state or not.
    For info check the web site of the FREEDOM FOUNDATION.

“It’s OK that our babies…” They’re not “your” babies, they are the parents’ kids. Always question what the union says, wants or demands. It will invariably be what’s in the union’s interest, not the teachers or the students.

“– ‘You can recall the Governor. You can recall the school board. But how are you going to recall me?'”
Is this supposed to be a polite way of saying, “F— you!”

“You can recall the Governor. You can recall the school board. But how are you going to recall me?”

Sounds like a challenge.

    Just have a couple of people march up to the podium, grab her, throw her in an arm lock, and frog march her out the door, and tell her not to come back.

Why are these awful “educators” always obese, childless psychotics?

    Why, in general, are so many of them ugly, frowsy-looking, perpetually sad people?

    I RARELY see an attractive woman or a handsome man spouting this kind of crap. The women are generally, as already stated, obese. They are childless not just because of the obesity but because they are nasty, vile, loud and bossy.

    The men are mostly sickly looking rails, or are also obese. If they have any sort of facial hair, it is unkempt, or in a style that makes it look slapped-on. Man-buns are common. Did I mention they whine? And, that when they play their folk instruments (badly), they insist on singing?

The teachers’ unions are nothing but a front for the communist party. Period.
