District, teachers still at odds

From today's Courier Times . . .

When parents attended back-to-school nights at Neshaminy middle schools Thursday night, their son's or daughter's classroom teacher wasn't the only educator greeting them.
Other members of the Neshaminy Federation of Teachers were outside the middle schools, wearing their union shirts and handing out fliers regarding contract negotiations with the school board.
While the educators' handouts encouraged parents to urge the district and school board members to negotiate a fair deal, board President Ritchie Webb said he was embarrassed for the teachers.
Union President Louise Boyd, though, said the educators' goal was to get out information to the community and she was proud of her members for doing so.

If the teachers didn't create enough hostility from parents with the picket line at middle school BTS, it will only get much worse at Thursday night's elementary BTS nights. Parking is already at a premium at many of our elementary schools. Doesn't seem like an effective way to win friends and influence people!
