The Jefferson County Teachers’ Association (JCTA) seems to not understand who the other party is to their collective bargaining agreement. Instead, JCTA president Brent McKim keeps trying to suck Kentucky Commissioner of Education Terry Holliday into dealing directly with the union, but Holliday correctly points out that the union needs to work with the Jefferson County Public Schools (JCPS), instead.
As WAVE-3 TV points out, Holliday just reiterated his unwillingness to improperly step into the middle of that contract.
Instead, Holliday provided JCPS several days ago with an expanded, eight-page listing of the ways the contract between the union and the district has interfered with turn around efforts in many Persistently Low-Achieving Schools (now called Priority Schools) found in that district. Thus, Holliday continues to strengthen his case that the union is damaging children in Louisville.
Meanwhile, the union’s deny, deny, deny tactics about their interference are becoming more and more absurd, seriously undermining already seriously doubtful union credibility.
