Unfortunately not all of the facts are being reported. The Union DID NOT reject the “Hold Harmless Model”, but they did however have questions regarding the 30 plus teachers that were excluded from the model. When asked which teachers were identified as those that would be held from the model, as well as how the model would affect teachers that were not reassigned last year due to Instructional Practice scores and still have not found jobs yet, the chief negotiator walked out of the bargaining session. So in essence, “all” does not include “all” and it is important to all of the 13,000 plus teachers that the Union bargains for that we indeed are all included and benefit from the negotiations.
