Central Falls (Rhode Island) High School – All Unionized Teachers Fired.

Central Falls Rhode Island – School Superintendent Fires All Unionized High School Teachers.

This is what I get for watchin’ NASCAR all weekend (GO JAMIE !!!)…. I missed a real good story – The Providence Journal is one of the left-of-left rags I look through daily for laughs (Kennedy Country).

Thanks to the one and only Dr. Rusty Shackleford at The Jawa Report for the tip off………

Under threat of losing their jobs if they didn’t go along with extra work for not a lot of extra pay, the Central Falls Teachers’ Union refused Friday morning to accept a reform plan for one of the worst-performing high schools in the state.

The superintendent didn’t blink either.

After learning of the union’s position, School Supt. Frances Gallo notified the state that she was switching to an alternative she was hoping to avoid: firing the entire staff at Central Falls High School.  In total, about 100 teachers, administrators and assistants will lose their jobs.

In an interview, Jane M. Sessums, union president, said the union intends to fight the terminations, although she was not ready to say how.

==============

Got a feeling I know how.

Ms. Gallo best get some armed security and get it pronto.

Someone else besides me please keep an eye on Central Falls Rhode Island……. for cars exploding, body parts in local ponds, heads on signposts, the odd purple shirt…… the usual.

By the way, the extra work requested of the teachers was about 25 minutes, plus maybe spending some time with the students during lunch.

Oh the horrors.
