California Schools Play Race Card In Open School Debate

It was just a matter of time.

In Sacramento, California’s state Capitol, teachers unions are making a host of outrageous demands for perks and sinecures. To help them along, one of their members said parents who want to return their kids to classrooms are “white supremacists.” The educrat did not elaborate on specifically how wanting your child to get a normal standard education at a school is proof of racism.

But then in California, you don’t have to, as the mere mention of race is supposed to drive people to clutch their pearls and reach for the smelling salts. In America that wouldn’t work. In California it often does.

FNC: “The Sacramento City Unified School District says it is at an ‘impasse’ with the Service Employee International Union 1021 over the conditions of reopening schools this week. An ‘impasse,’ according to the district, is a ‘formal declaration that continued negotiations would not be productive to reach a formal agreement.’ The deadlock came after SCUSD reached an agreement with the Sacramento City Teachers Association (SCTA) last month to begin a phased-in reopening plan for in-person classes beginning April 8.

“School district officials said they’ve offered SEIU members multiple stipends related to COVID-19-related expenses, as well as an option for parents with child care issues to bring their school-age children to schools near their work, provided there was space. SEIU 1021 reportedly countered the district’s offer with a list of additional demands, including more stipends for workers who couldn’t bring their children to school and allowing employees with children ages 3 and under to work remotely. Another demand was for the district to establish four child care centers staffed by SEIU 1021 and SCTA employees.

Do you believe Dr. Fauci when he says another COVID surge is on the way?

“SCUSD made headlines last week after one of its teachers, speaking as a parent at a neighboring school district, called parents ‘White supremacists’ for wanting their kids to return to the classroom.”

 

Becki Belle, a union member and a parent, said she sympathized with parents, given her own challenges with finding child care during the pandemic. “I can understand their apprehension. If they were working in an environment that might allow easier access for child care during this pandemic, I would hope that they would take advantage of it,” Belle said. But that won’t be enough. Nothing will be. Educrats want their paid vacation to continue, regardless of the effects on students or parents.
