Teachers Union Threatens Boycott of L.A. Times

teacher Teachers Union Threatens Boycott of L.A. Times

On Saturday, the Los Angeles Times began publishing a hard-hitting analysis on teacher performance. Today, the Los Angeles Times is reporting that union leaders are threatening the paper as a result:

The Los Angeles teachers union president said Sunday he was organizing a “massive boycott” of The Times after the newspaper began publishing a series of articles that uses student test scores to estimate the effectiveness of district teachers.

“You’re leading people in a dangerous direction, making it seem like you can judge the quality of a teacher by … a test,” said A.J. Duffy, president of United Teachers Los Angeles, which has more than 40,000 members.

Duffy said he would urge other labor groups to ask their members to cancel their subscriptions.

  • Not Surprised

    It’s about time some one looked at the teachers performance.
    Someone once told me that the road to hell is paved with good intentions, in the end its not the intentions it’s what gets done and the california teachers have failed it’s about time they took credit for it.

    All these teachers need to be fired. Give the students Vouchers and let them select their own schools.
