Is this strike about quality school text books, student supplies or a quality curriculum? Nope, it’s supposedly a little about teacher pay and class size, but mostly about tenured teachers and their ability to transfer to schools they want to teach at.
The two sides have been disputing issues including pay and class size, but the major sticking point is how the district handles teacher transfers. The district wants to consider some factors in addition to seniority.
The Tacoma Education Association, the union for 1,900 teachers, is defying a court order for them to return to work.
Court order? Who cares … we’re standing up for our rights.
For those of you who think there is a correlation between class size and test scores, show me the proof.
