From the video I did not see teachers on school property. I did see teachers on public sidewalks. Which they have the right to be on. Seem to me Mr. Olson is misleading. Unions do not select the board members. Members are elected by the people who live within the district. Any school is as good or bad depending on how well parents will back teachers. Parents have blame teachers because their child will not do his homework, late for school.Teachers teach students 6 hrs. per day. They have no control what happens the other 18 hrs. ex. homework being completed, place for students to study, home life, importance of education from the parents. Parents have taken their failing students out of school to go on family vacations.

I have never blamed a teacher because my child did not complete or turn in his homework nor have any of my children failed...don't come on here and expect sympathy for a union - especially a teacher's union.

The school board also angered the union by passed a resolution limiting signs and banners on school property and prohibiting teachers from using school email accounts.

The union believes it can do anything it pleases – including walking out on students – and not face consequences. Yet union officials were angered when the school board decided to draw the line during the teachers strike by not allowing...
