The Los Angeles teachers union must be dislodged from its position of power. By whatever means necessary, Los Angeles must no longer be held hostage to the union’s capricious greed and deep dishonesty. I note this in light of the Los Angeles teachers’ strike. Teachers union head, Alex Caputo-Pearl, says the strike is a moral necessity in defense of investment in student futures. If that contention were truthful, Caputo-Pearl’s strike might even be justified. But the union boss is not truthful.
This strike is not about better student futures. It’s simply about extracting short-term gains for union members at the cost of the school district’s more expedient bankruptcy.
