Union Backing Helps Us Help Children

I found this interesting story in the Sacramento Bee online yesterday, coming out of a small school district near Sacramento:

Rocklin Unified retaliated against school nurses, judge says

News involving schools always catches my eye, but this excerpt is particularly noteworthy in today’s education policy climate:
The Rocklin Teachers Professional Association filed an unfair practice charge against the school district in 2010, alleging the four nurses were laid off in retaliation for asking their union for assistance regarding workload and safety issues.
In PERB documents, the district argued that the nurses routinely said no to many requests and claimed their nursing licenses would not let them perform certain work.
This story won’t be noted in the national news, but it should be noted by those engaged in the national debate on

And the test scores of students of color reveal a gap that exposes a culture of privileging the already privileged, that shows little sign of change. Hands are wringing and policy makers and administrators scramble to increase standards and heighten the stakes of measurable achievement. We must c... more »
