Mount Vernon teacher Jeff Leer hit the papers again. In a letter-to-the-editor, Mr. Leer describes the WEA's summer vacation to date: a prolonged session behind the woodshed.
Justice Scalia said that the only thing that makes this complicated is the fact that the WEA chooses to commingle funds that doesn’t belong to it. The union tried to claim it was actually the WEA’s money. Laughter broke out in the court. I was there.
The Seattle Times, hardly a part of the right-wing conspiracy the WEA has used as a scapegoat for years, called its practice a money-laundering scheme.
When students get into trouble, I respect them more if they own up to their mistakes and take responsibility for their actions. The WEA will yet again face monetary penalties for its law-breaking. Who will pay? Every hardworking teacher, while the union bosses continue to make excuses and collect huge salaries. How sad.
