A Harder Line
The Big Picture
San Diego’s teachers union has become increasingly isolated and hardline in its approach to budget negotiations with the school district, a stance that has alienated and disheartened former union officials.
Why This Is a Crucial Juncture
School district officials say the next couple of years will determine whether the district stays solvent. They say cooperation with employee unions on possible concessions is vital to the district’s financial future.
What’s the Problem
The teachers union says the district’s latest budget claims are just more fear-mongering. That claim has some basis, since the district has gained a reputation among teachers and employees as being dishonest and inept in accurately presenting its budget shortfalls.
