Special Interests in Another School Board Election

In another bid to sit on both sides of the monopoly bargaining table, teacher union officials in the Missouri Lindbergh school district are running 4 of 9 candidates in the race. Mike Anthony has the story in the Call newspapers.

The April 4 election for the Lindbergh Board of Education is the most crucial race in the district’s history.
The outcome will decide what path the district will take — one of continuing to focus on students and academic achievement or one of shifting the focus to such adult issues as teacher pay.

Nine candidates, including four backed by the Lindbergh National Education Association, are vying for four seats. Over 30 events and activities throughout the district have been canceled because teachers refused to participate in them.
