ED, cheap teachers [D209]

Pioneer Press reports the District 209 teachers are giving $200 to help 15,000 of their union sisters and brothers forced to evacuate due to hurricanes Katrina and Rita. That comes to less than two cents per IFT member evacuated. And the union members are kicking in a dollar a piece or a little less.

Here's a tip for Pioneer Press when covering charitable giving. If the money given for the charitable cause is less than it would take to purchase the space in the paper as an advertisement, it's probably too small a contribution to be newsworthy.

  • I think the 19% raise over four years deserves about 1,000 times the coverage of the $200 charity contribution.

    But Pioneer Press gave them about equal coverage. It's a bad editorial call.

    Although, I'd be embarassed to send out a press release on a $200 contribution if I worked for a union. $200 is what kids raise at a bakesale.

  • Carl I was thinking the same thing when reading that pitiful story in the paper.
    The teachers should be embarassed for only donating $200 and the President is a suck up to Welch and a BIG JOKE among the teachers. Who voted for her and why? This is a really bad and dumb union with political ties to Welch and Moore. Welch seems to have Pioneer Press and the teachers union in his pocket. But what else is new in Proviso? The same corrupt stuff even happens among the teachers

  • To 209sucks and Carl:

    Why don't you talk to some teachers - you might find out not all teachers are as ignorant and small-minded as you are. Before you spread your bitter opinions about the teachers, come sit in a classroom. Though its hard to enlighten some people like yourselves who has attitudes set in concrete, it would be a hoot to see your reaction to some students and abilities, and then judge how nice the teachers have it.

  • I bet the house the 209 teachers have donated more to Katrina Relief than Carl Nyberg. How much have you donated Carl? If anything, post a link to a copy of the canceled check or receipt for donated items.

  • Damn. The teachers have a hard enough time trying to dodge the school politics of Welch and Moored, trying to teach their students and being under paid. Give them a break why don't cha?
    Some of these comments are childish for sure.

  • Yeah, sit where? At the Welch/Moore Magnet Academy. No one wants to sitin a classroom at East with the bomb threats and West has a fights daily and a racist principal. 209 SUCKS and Carl did not make it SUCK WELCH Did.
