Here’s a win-win situation:
The Fresno Teachers Association (FTA) is demanding that the Fresno Unified School district set aside parking for homeless families, as a part of their larger list of demands – such as free laundry services – as the union prepares to go on strike.
Yes; nothing says “We Care About The Children!” more than putting a squatters’ camp right on school property.
Fortunately, the school district is showing just a little common sense:
The district has previously stated that it does not plan to bow to the union’s demand, with the district’s chief communications officer saying that, “We do not plan to open our parking lots,” since “education, not housing,” is the school district’s area of expertise.
The union has other demands: money for “security”, an end to Global Warming, banning tooth decay and some other equally-important stuff, but nemmind.
Here’s the win: the longer this bunch of malcontent Marxists can stay out of the classroom, the better-off the kids will be.
And here’s the other win: the longer the school district plays hardball, the sooner the striking schoolteachers will have to join the ranks of the homeless they seem to care so much about.
Of course, there’s another way to deal with these striking teachers:
…but no doubt someone’s going to have a problem with this.
