More Class Acts From Teacher's Union Members

Via EIA (see blogroll at left) comes this story about a cantankerous school board meeting in cheerful Oakland, California. You can get the tone of the op-ed piece from these two excerpts:

We want to respect our teachers and support them. But when they use such juvenile tactics, it is hard to take them seriously.

It's time for the leaders of the teachers union to grow up, tone down the theatrics and work with the administration to find the best solutions to the myriad problems facing the district.

Well, teachers? If we're going to act like a blue collar rabble, we should expect to be treated like a blue collar rabble. Want to be treated like professionals? At least act the part.

Not sure the "blue collar" comparison is fair. I've never heard of the UAW, for instance, insisting that a person being kept on the job as a welder if he clearly doesn't know how to weld...but teacher's unions do this kind of thing all the time.
