The Torrence Teachers Association – an affiliate of the CTA – sent a letter to its members in 2010 calling Schwab “our attorney.” He was “appointed” to help with local union with layoff issues, it said.

Schwab was also carbon-copied on a 2009 letter from then-United Teachers Los Angeles president A.J. Duffy to then-Superintendent Ramon Cortines disputing district layoffs.

LAProgressive.com writer Leonard Isenberg wrote last year that the UTLA was paying Schwab’s firm $2,500 per case to help laid-off teachers.

So California teachers, do you know if your dues are paying to defend such garbage? Does having a teacher acting indifferent to students viewing her “work” increase your professionalism?
