RE: Thanks for input on school sched, plan/conf. periods?

The association is the same as the Union in other states. Both National
Unions have associations in Texas, because Texas doesn't negotiate
teacher contracts - we pass laws. Fortunately we only allow the lunatics
to congregate in Austin once every two years. It keeps the damage to a
minimum. Now if we could just make the Governor's position part-time
also ;-P

without accepting it. - Aristotle

Don't think we have a union?......I checked with Tex ed. assoc., schools
only required to give 45 min of planning. per day. oh well, I did talk
with someone at the
district and let her know that it was inequitable the way the plan time
thanks for all your input, I will still keep chking for loop holes. And
I will not be
attending any meeting, training of any sort during that 45 min, since it
specified in tex. policy you cannot be required to. I'm sure i will
cause a
big stink!
