Great Video about CTA donation to No on 8

Here’s a great video made by a public school teacher about the California Teacher’s Association spending money to defeat Proposition 8.  Why is the CTA getting involved in this?

    Thank you for your video–I’m a parent with two girls in public school. I was thinking exactly what you addressed, but now I’ll “rethink” supporting increases in teacher’s wages again. I wish we would have known about the sit-out–I hear there might be one next Monday, but still checking that out to be sure.

    The only problem with the sick out is hurts the schools and kids, not the CTA. The best thing to do is to write a letter to the CTA tell them that you disagree with their actions, and to stay out of politics and stop wasting money on things that they shouldn’t be involved in.

    As teacher’s we should all quit for at least one month to send these people a message.

    Quit the CTA for a month, not our jobs of course.

    Have you heard about the Camilla Letter from the girl in Folsom?

    California Teacher’s Association Responds to “Camilla Letter”
    Board Member Jim Rogers responds directly to student letter with abrupt condescension, sparking local outrage

    In a letter questioning CTA choices in this matter, Folsom High School student Camilla X, wrote to CTA officials protesting their use of teacher funds and received this shockingly worded reply from CTA/NEA coordinator, Jim Rogers….and this is a direct quote:

    “Thanks, Sweetie, but it’s over for now. And it’s really none of your business.”
