I’m sure there is no relation…

 

Teachers Union intimidation cited … Day says the HEA sent a letter from its lawyer to the Howell school district’s attorney threatening litigation if Day did not stop “monitoring” and “publishing” union information. Day defends that her first amendment and freedom of speech rights are being attacked and has since filed a complaint with the American Civil Liberties Union. Day is not only asking the HEA to cease and desist what she called “intimidation” but is also requesting a public apology from HEA leadership. Day tells WHMI she’s disappointed and hopes the rank and file of good teachers in Howell will stand up to union leadership and say its not the way they want time and union dues spent. She says the focus should be on student achievement, teacher improvement and putting kids first since that is the union’s mantra. Union officials say Day is misrepresenting the situation and that her blog and its commentary are that of a publicly elected official and not a private citizen, a notion Day disputes. A link to Day’s blog and the e-mail in question may be found by Clicking Here.

  2. I believe Mr. Felkner is referring to our own Billy-boob Day who obviously isn’t related to the Day in the article with the gumption to stand up to the union.
