Why Schools Should Never be Allowed to Unionize

I am pretty good with letting most any person or group do what they want because that is freedom. But freedom doesn’t allow you to hurt others, especially not for personal gain. Likewise, freedom does not support allowing incompetent elected or hired people to remain in position when they are a failure. I have shown you good unions in the past which help the people and community. I have shown you bad unions in the past which hurt people, communities, and our country. Currently in Detroit MI the latter is happening. Whenever a person, community, leader, or Union uses children to try and blackmail people to succumb to their desires, a clear unethical line has been crossed.

Detroit City was put under an Emergency Manager to straighten up the mess that 50 years of liberal corruption, neglect, and incompetence has grown, it is now for the first time in decades, almost out of debt. The Detroit Public Schools likewise has been ran into the ground by liberal leadership. This leadership adds 1 million dollars to the Detroit Public Schools systems debt every day. When you have Liberal educators like Detroit’s Mumford High School principal Kenyetta Wilbourn-Snapp running the show, our kids don’t stand a chance. She was guilty of accepting bribes, but why would you bribe a principle? Maybe it has something to do with the graduation rate in Detroit going from 24.9% in 2007 and magically raising to 78.6% in 2014; over a 300% raise. You see, the more students who graduate, the more Federal Education Funds the school system receives. Or maybe it was a payoff to cover up employees like Domonique Campbell and her mother, both were found guilty of embezzling $530,000 from the Detroit Public Schools system. I have to ask, don’t they do audits? Oh wait, Sandra Campbell was the DPS accountant and School Board member. I’m sure they would have given bribes to cover up what they were doing. Or maybe it was to cover up teachers like Kathryn Ronk who statutorily raped a 15 year old female student. The problem is, in Detroit even the courts are liberal and corrupt. Ms. Ronk who was in a position of authority by Michigan law was mandated a minimum of 15 years in prison, but she only received a minimum of 6 years to 15 years.

The Detroit Public Schools leaders and the Detroit Federation of Teachers (DFT) were in charge of the Detroit Public School System but refuse to accept responsibility for their actions. They will tell you, “It is not their fault!” The Detroit Public School System ran the infrastructure, ran the finances, hired problem teachers, and supported the DFT who mandates they keep the all teachers. This is what caused the destruction of the Detroit Public School System and illiteracy of the students; but it’s not their fault. For Detroit to keep advancing in the right direction, Detroit must fix the bleeding from the Detroit Public Schools system and remove these slimy school affiliated people who prey on students. The DFT, the Detroit teacher’s union, makes this virtually impossible. The school system must be streamlined, it must make positive changes to its climate, and it must learn to live within its means. If Detroit is ever going to leave behind the national reputation as the worse school systems in America, change is required. The DFT lost in court to stop the restructure of the Detroit Public Schools systems so like all liberals, they resort to any means necessary, even if the children are hurt.

Now you can watch as the DFT, as all liberals, resorts to illegal tactics to the detriment of the students; the law doesn’t matter to liberals. In true fashion, after losing in court, the DFT have started shutting down the school systems by having its DFT members call in sick, “Teacher Sickouts.” They are rotating the teachers who are acting sick, so no one teacher can be targeted by the system, but having enough call in sick to shut schools down. More than 60 Detroit Public Schools have been shut down by DFT’s actions depriving the neediest students in our country of a good education. The DFT does this because students do not matter, only money and power. I thought teachers cared about the kids? The protection of bad teachers, principals, superintendents, and other school officials needs to end. No more covering for incompetent teachers, abusive teachers, and lazy teachers. No more covering for principles lack of leadership, biasness, and who are prejudice. No more superintendents and other school officials’ mismanagement of funds, creating political agenda to driven policies, and covering for bad actors working in the system. I know the hate mail will be coming in stating I said I hate unions which I don’t, I do hate bad unions and DFT is one of the worse. Bad unions have forced many of our countries manufacturing plants to go elsewhere, often overseas. These companies are able to move but our children can't. In Detroit, you can’t move your children out of the public school system unless you have money; this needs to change.

As of 2014, the Detroit Public Schools system receives $13,825 per student; 17 miles away, Wyandotte Public Schools which has a much better rating only receive $8,242 per student, so the lack of money isn’t the problem. You can’t ship every student to a better school like Wyandotte but why not let the parents have a $13,825 dollar in a voucher so they can chose any school, public, private, or charter? If you care about the children, this will give the children a better education and chance to succeed. Liberal are hypocritical, if President Obama and the other liberals believe in the public school system, why do all their children go to private schools? Liberals will reject this because once again, they don’t care for your kids, just the money they can get from unions to keep your kids in place; it is a monopoly. Because of bad education in the Detroit Public School System, most students cannot make it in the working force and resort to crime. When you can’t read, write, or follow any procedures because you lack the skills and discipline which is should be taught in school, you will fail in life. This shows how the liberals and Detroit Public School System has failed Detroit’s children.
