Daily Press Writes of “Charged Atmosphere” at Board Meeting

AR-150219821.jpg&MaxW=650Another “Charged Atmosphere” board meeting. The struggle continues between Adelanto teachers “ADTA” and the Adelanto Elementary School District. Intro from the article:

“A vocal crowd of close to 200 people packed the Adelanto Elementary School District boardroom on Tuesday, bringing attention to stalled bargaining talks between the teachers union and administrators.

Parents and children joined teachers’ union leaders from Victorville, Hesperia, Barstow and Silver Valley school districts in support of the Adelanto educators. The collective bargaining battle has gone on for more than a year, and Adelanto teachers met last month to discuss the possibility of a strike.

“We are standing behind you,” said Beth Pierce, a union leader from the Victor Elementary School District. “We have teachers who feel that what is happening is completely unfair. We want you to know that every sign is worth it, every red shirt (worn in solidarity) is worth it, and every tear you shed is worth it. We’re there for you.””
