Note to union teachers: If you want to be treated like professionals, you’re required to act the part

Mar 14, 2013 by

STRONGSVILLE, Ohio – I was deeply troubled when video surfaced last week of striking Strongsville, Ohio teachers heckling substitute teachers who were applying to be their temporary replacements.

conchshellOver 300 teachers are on strike because the school board is refusing to give them automatic raises, and the school board undercut their mass temper tantrum by hiring substitutes to keep schools open.

The substitutes, complete with police escorts, had to endure heckling and jeering by the strikers. The unionists often followed alongside the substitutes, berating them and yelling in their faces as they headed to the local police department for mandatory background checks.


The entire scene had that 1957 Little Rock/school integration “walk of shame” feel to it.

Ironically, one striker yelled at a black substitute, “Rosa Parks would be ashamed!”
