Re Huntington Beach city schools:
Apparently, the union leadership, which claims to represent the classroom teachers, has violated a promise to the superintendent and school board by continuing to press for higher salaries after the contract.
I know previous fact findings by parent, teacher and arbitration groups have supported the responsible actions of the Board of Trustees. Apparently, the vote to not support Proposition 98 was the issue that set off at least the militant leadership of the teachers union. The fact that the California School Board Assn. did not support the union-written and -sponsored proposition encouraged me that the Huntington Beach City School District is on firm ground and responsible to the community.
But, like the police union of Santa Ana, when votes didn't go their way, a "no-confidence" vote is taken. A secret vote of 85% of teachers polled approved the vote of no confidence. How many teachers voted?
