Letter to the editor: Where will union fit in?

Two weeks before the recent school board election, there was a story in this paper about a national teachers' union donating $300,000 to the campaigns of the CommUNITY candidates, who eventually won.

No doubt, the union is expecting a payback of some sort for this investment, and it will be interesting to see in the coming months what form that takes.

I expect the union will be getting a larger voice in our local education system and the teachers will be getting bigger paychecks.

The question is whether or not these rewards will be tied to improved education results or be just a return on investment for their campaign contribution. I hope it is not the latter.
