NEA members at RA are not for the kids?
Unions, as evidenced by these videos, have been putting the interests of school employees first for quite some time. The reason the obvious dichotomy has developed is because the adult issues (pay, benefits, work rules) are often divergent from student needs. – Kyle Olson, Education Action Group
Last week my stalker Ben Velderman reappeared to announce the death of the NEA.
This week we have the return of Ben’s boss, Kyle Olson of the Education Action Group.
Olson, you recall, traveled the country last year warning the citizens that the children’s book Click Clack Moo: Cows that Type was Bolshevik introctrination.
I have a close personal relationship with Kyle since he wrote a letter to my district’s school board president demanding that I be fired for mocking the weird Ben Velderman on my blog.
The school board president suggested in response that Kyle was wasting tax-payer money on these anti-Klonsky crusades and should leave the district alone.
So. What is Kyle Olson up to lately?
He is condemning teachers, including me, for suggesting that we be paid fairly, have good working conditions and have their promised pensions paid.
These were all video taped at last weeks NEA Representative Assembly.
To Kyle this is clearly evidence that teachers are selfish and ARE NOT FOR THE KIDS!
In this ongoing project called Use Your Teacher Voice, teachers speak for about 30 seconds about their work.
Michelle Harris-Padron, a teacher in Oxnard, California describes how she advocates for bicycle helmets for her kindergarten students and encourages teacher voices to be heard.
Brent Gaspaire of Tacoma, Washington is video taped saying,”You can’t put students first if you put teachers last.”
And then Olson posts my video saying that the state should pay the pension they promised me.
To Olson this is clear evidence I’m not for the kids.
There are many more videos.
Take added pleasure in knowing how much it aggravates Kyle Olson.
