The teachers unions supports sex offenders in your child’s school ( outrage )

This past week the most prominent teachers unions in America made it painfully obvious: they are on the side of the sex offender, rapist, and murderer who has been convicted.

They are not now (and pretty much never have been) on the side of your child.

They claim to represent the interests of teachers. Yet I am hard pressed to find an average teacher who feels like the unions have done pretty much anything for them. The average teacher just feels the pinch when the union bosses take the dues from their paychecks and threaten any who dare to “get out of line.”
Last week — in atypical overwhelming bi-partisan unity — the House of Representatives passed a measure (H.R. 2083) that would allow schools to require teachers, coaches, and janitors to be subject to criminal background checks. The measure would allow the school to deny employment to any who had been convicted (not suspected, indicted, or accused — but convicted) of past felonies. The measure would also allow the school to take a pass on any previously convicted sex-offender. The measure will now head to the Senate.
If the Senate cares about the welfare of children they will pass the measure forthwith.
The problem is — they may not care about the kids.
The Senate is majority Democrat in party affiliation, and Democrat candidates rely heavily upon huge disproportionate contributions to their campaign funds from the unions to get re-elected. So now Majority Leader Harry Reid is being lobbied hard by the teachers’ unions to kill the bill, or direct fellow Democrats to vote it to defeat. (You can encourage Reid to ignore them by calling his office at 202.224.3121.)
