I have been trying to bring more transparency to local schools during the budget problems local schools are facing. In addition to the photos and video I have also been posting memos. Click on continue reading to view a campaign flyer from Rick Lebeck who ran for a position in our local union. There are also more videos to see by clicking on continue reading.
Send me any photos, memos, or videos you want posted.

Thanks for reading my blog.
( Conservative activist Tom Snyder discusses why he thinks the CTA is run by socialists.)
( Santa Susana teacher Andrew Hollander discusses seniority, getting a pink slip, and why he likes his school.)
( Union leader and teacher Mark Sheinberg discusses the proposed budget cuts.)
( School Board Member Jeanne Davis discussing pink slips, seniority, and the budget.)
I didn't get this up before the election for a position of leadership in our local union but I wanted to share with my readers the issues teachers face. There was another candidate but this time I only got something in my box from Rick Lebeck.
Here is the text of Rick's campaign flyer:
230 or More Teachers to Receive Pink Slips This Week
CTA support of upcoming Proposition 1B this May 19th is welcome news but will it be enough to save teacher's jobs next year?
This week, SEA members will be asked to send a message through the CTA that they are worried about their jobs and the future of education in the state of California. It is my intention to provide a clear and independent voice for all members of the SEA: the CLADed and the un-CLAD, the provisional, the temporary and the permanent, that the current status quo in Sacramento is completely and totally unacceptable and real change is needed to reclaim our once proud schools and profession.
To say that the current situation is dire is underscoring the potential slaughtering of scores of teaching positions, not to mention the loss of a significant portion of our classified and administrative support staff.
Collusion and Conformity is not a Substitute for Collective Action!
I will work with the SEA President, the members of the cabinet, the council, and every member of the rank and file to promote the rights of all teachers to work and labor with the dignity they have earned and are deserving of. I will also work tirelessly to always promote the interests of students as well as all my brothers and sisters in education because I firmly believe our interests and the interests of millions of children are intertwined and the key to our success as a community and a nation of hope, new ideas, and redirected priorities.
I am an 8-year employee of the SVUSD, a 13-year veteran teacher, married to wife Sue, currently teaching 8th grade Science at Hillside MS and proudly serving on the SEA Executive Board.
Vote like your job or the job of your fellow teachers depended on it!
