Educator and author Rebecca Friedrichs described the #RedForEd movement — pushed by teachers’ unions and their political allies — as a “deception” that uses teachers as pawns to advance the unions’ far-left political agenda to “fundamentally change [American] culture.” Friedrichs, the plaintiff in the 2016 Supreme Court case Friedrichs v. California Teachers Association, offered her remarks in a Tuesday interview on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight with hosts Rebecca Mansour and Joel Pollak.LISTEN: Friedrichs said, “What the teachers’ unions really are — and I’m talking about state and national teachers’ unions — they’re really the political action committee of the far left. They take teachers’ dues money to fight for what they call social justice — their definition of social justice — which is all this far-left March for Our Lives, and all these things that … [Read more...] about Rebecca Friedrichs on #RedForEd: Teachers Are Being Used to Advance Union Agenda
Teachers on strike in Los Angeles attempted to stop non-union substitutes from arriving at the Robert F. Kennedy Community Schools on Thursday morning, as the local union continued its strike into a fourth day. Marchers chanted “Turn around!” and “Scabs!” at the substitute teachers, who have been hired by the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) to supervise students whose working parents may have no other option for child care in the day.Police were on hand to make sure that the substitutes could proceed safely into the complex — though union activists attempted to dissuade drivers from entering, and tried to provide them with leaflets about the strike. Turnout for the strike was very strong, as the union and its allies maintained three separate picket lines around the school complex despite heavy rain. Drivers passing by honked their horns in solidarity with the protests. In addition to members of the United Teachers Los Angeles (UTLA), members of … [Read more...] about Watch: Striking Teachers Urge ‘Scabs’ Not to Cross Picket Line in L.A.
The Los Angeles branch of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) has joined the ongoing strike by the local teachers’ union, turning out to support picket lines and to hurl abuse at “scabs” hired by the school district. The “scabs” have been hired to supervise group activities for the roughly one-third of students who are still attending school during the strike because their parents cannot afford to take time off work or to pay for child care.Many of the teachers on the picket lines happen to be wearing red, traditionally favored by communists and socialists. Demonstrators told Breitbart News at one protest Wednesday that the color red simply stands for solidarity, and also happens to be the color favored by their union, the United Teachers Los Angeles (UTLA). Teachers who have gone on strike in other parts of the country recently have also favored red, often referring to their protests with the hashtag “#Red4Ed.” The National Education … [Read more...] about ‘Democratic Socialists’ Join L.A.

Sport / Dundee FC by George Cran January 11, 2019, 10:00 am FacebookTwitterLinkedInWhatsAppEmail Send us a story Sign up to our Sport newsletter Dundee’s American owners have entered into negotiations with fans to give them complete control at Dens Park. It has emerged talks with the Dundee Football Club Supporters Society Ltd (DFCSS) to acquire a chunk of their shares in order to bring their holding from 68.2% to over 75% have been ongoing since the summer. Doing so would remove the veto rights of the DFCSS over a number of issues, including over the new stadium proposal at Camperdown Park but also safeguards over any future sale of the club or potential merger with another club. However, owner Tim Keyes and managing director John Nelms could gain 75% of the club anyway through a rights issue without the agreement of the DFCSS. That talks have begun between the two parties, though, suggests a desire to work with fans on the future of the club. Close … [Read more...] about IN FULL: How Dundee FC’s owners can gain full control of club WITHOUT asking fans
