No Good Deed Goes Unpunished

Just remember, it's all about the children:
Twin Rivers Unified School District's use of AmeriCorps volunteers has pleased parents and angered the California School Employees Association, which has filed an unfair practice charge with the Public Employment Relations Board...

Officials at the CSEA and its Twin Rivers chapter say the district is replacing trained teacher aides with "college kids with no training," said Carlo Tarantola, CSEA labor relations representative...

Twin Rivers teachers union President John Ennis said he has not seen evidence that teacher aides are being supplanted by AmeriCorps.

Somehow, I'm thinking that terms like union "brothers" and "sisters" are currently not in vogue in the Twin Rivers district.
