Back in April, you will recall that my sister had a meeting where she was going to have to face a parent that was, I suspected, going to accuse her of racism. Now that the school year is over, we can close the books on that.

During the meeting, the school would not allow her to have union representation. The representative was there, but the school said that since the meeting was not going to include discipline, the union could not be there. As soon as the meeting began, the parent began with the racism accusations.

The good news here is that the parent was hated by administration, because she keeps complaining and demanding a new teacher for her little hell spawn. This is the fourth teacher that this parent has made racism complaints against. This time, it didn’t work. My sister finally wound up not getting in trouble.

That’s good news, I guess. The bad news is she is still in the employ of a school system that caters to the whims of (and is increasingly run by) those who hate her and want her destroyed. And even if she goes elsewhere, the same dynamic is in play to one extent or another. Point being that she got away unscathed this time, but there will be a next time, and her good fortune this far may not hold.

I know it’s too easy for me to say this, but I’d be looking for a change of scenery if I were her. And I do realize that is very challenging in reality. A job change is difficult enough, a full on career change is not something most people can successfully effect in short order.

    I agree. That’s why I don’t teach any longer.

    Really? I changed careers several times in my working life, it just depends on “do you want it bad enough”. At no time was I out of work for more than a week, either.

      Not to besmirch DM’s sister by any means, but the typical public school teacher is not likely equipped to make a sudden career change, even if they wanted to. Note that DM was not your typical public school teacher, and was more of a renaissance man type (my supposition from reading here) who had the wherewithall to make a quick turn into another line of work.

      I imagine many are in a financial situation where they cannot afford to take extended time off work with no income while getting education or training to make a career change. In fact, that is probably true of the majority of working class Americans now, irrespective of their careers. Savings, WTF are those? I gotta have that next paycheck just to eat, man.

      And in a case like the one DM’s sister faced, the smartest move would’ve been to immediately seek a career change away from a system that is being ever further weaponized against people like her. So far as we know, she didn’t, and is presumably trusting (or at least hoping) that she won’t get caught up in some bullshit like this again. I’d not take those odds, but then I’m a paranoid asshole who always assumes the worst outcome, so I can be pleasantly surprised when things go better than expected.

      Those of us who are unconventional in our approach to life should not ascribe our unusual characteristics onto normies, who do not share our gifts for discipline, deep thought, or willingness to put in a lot of effort at the temporary expense of personal comfort to do better. Most people are perfectly content with “just good enough”, and conduct themselves accordingly. See the worldwide public response to 3 years of COVID fuckery to fully understand the prevailing mindset. Not that you aren’t well aware of all that, of course.

        No besmirching. My sister is not very bright and teaching is her only real professional skill.
        As far as me: I was retired from the fire department when I became a teacher. I started teaching just three classes a day as a part time teacher. I believe that it is the responsibility of the older generations to mentor and teach the younger, and felt that teaching high school was a great way to do that. It turned out that I was wrong.
        So I left and, being too old to jump out of fire trucks at 2 am in what is a younger man’s profession, went back to working in the medical field as a nurse.

          Got news for you. I deal with teachers on a daily basis. Pretty much none of them are “very smart”; in fact, most of them are functionally retarded. They literally took the only 4-6 year undergraduate degree left that can earn you a living wage. The reason that they are stuck teaching retarded “Nig-Nogs” is because they simply don’t have enough intelligence to get themselves into a suburb or rural, all white district. No sympathy for these Gov’t parasites… Not one fuck given… I actually directly earn my money for a living..

AM trucker radio was going off on unions supporting the CPUSA (D) last night and I loved it!
One day muh waycism won’t work any more and it can’t come soon enough.
Mom got out of teaching in the late 1980’s and now that school and town is vibrancy and diversity uber alles.

Sounds like she has the basis for a lawsuit for harassment since she was the fourth teacher with false allegations.

I know in Kommiefornia a union member has the right to representation/witness in any meeting with management, Weingarten Rights. It is the members choice as to who the rep is. Glad it worked out for your sister. My dad was a teacher, retired in ’99.

    Divemedic · June 20, 2023 at 4:16 pm

    The loophole in Weingarten rights is that you have the right to union representation in any meeting with management that can result in discipline. If no discipline is involved, you don’t.

Had been curious how this turned out. Glad it was in her favor but she should pay attention to the writing on the wall. This will likely happen again, then again quicker. Public schools are going down the drain quicker than soap bubbles in a bathtub. Unless she is close to being able to retire, she should probably look at a private school or even community college.Or at least get into a less “diverse” location.
