尚塔尔·洛维尔(Chantal Lovell): LA teachers union tantrum – here's how not to run a school district

出奇, 洛杉矶统一学区的教育委员会-应该了解基本心理学-似乎错过了这个众所周知的事实, and the toddler-like United Teachers Los Angeles is in charge now. 

Worse, the board keeps piling candy on the conveyor belt, 和 联盟 continues to kick and scream and make a scene. Many of these concessions, including the latest one, were given with nothing in return from the union. Not even a commitment to return to the classroom next fall.

尤其, the LAUSD has met or exceeded all of the union’s demands directly related to mitigating pandemic threats and fears.

Los Angeles County is long out of the state’s most-restrictive COVID-19 tier, and is now squarely in its least restrictive one, an improvement that far exceeds UTLA’s demand that LA simply move into the second-most-restrictive tier before its members will return to work. 

The latest giveaway, as reported by the Los Angeles Daily News – provides added flexibility to teachers who have child care issues, allowing them to continue working from home, have a colleague teach their in-person students, leave campus during the already-limited day to pick up kids from child care, 等等. This comes a month after the district caved to the union’s demands for free child care, and offered teachers a $ 500 每月, per child stipend to cover such expenses.

 By demanding free child care, and then permission to leave the classroom to care for their own children, the union shows its hand. Caring for one’s own children isn’t a side effect of a global pandemic, 反而, an example of not letting a good crisis go to waste. 

The LAUSD Board of Education has taught the UTLA it can get what it wants so long as it screams loud enough.
