St. Louis teachers have no confidence in district administrators
By Maria Hickey, KWMU
St. Louis, MO – Teachers' union members unanimously gave the district's top administrators a vote of "no confidence" during an emergency meeting Sunday.
They're unhappy that the district is asking about 800 teachers to reapply for their jobs after about a dozen schools failed to meet yearly progress goals.
Union Vice President Byron Clemens says that's after the district made a payroll mistake shorting teachers on their last paycheck.
"The general feeling was that we want to be included in the process and we've been shut out of the reorganization," Clemens said. "The accountability seems to run one way in this district."
The teachers also voted to hold an information picket before the school board's agenda meeting tomorrow night and regular meeting next week.
