OSAWATOMIE, Kan. — The doom and gloom predictions of the state’s largest teachers union haven’t come to pass more than a year after Deerfield USD 216 faculty opted to boot out the Kansas National Education Association, according to teacher Doug Crandall.
“Things are going pretty well, actually,” said Crandall, who is also president of the newly revived Deerfield Educators Association.
In May 2013, Deerfield faculty voted to decertify KNEA within USD 216, meaning the union could no longer negotiate with local board of education members on teachers’ behalves. At the time Pamela Torgerson, director of Southwest UniServ, the district headquarters for KNEA, said the decision could turn foul without warning.
