I have been to many after hours work events, and this is seriously screwed up. A quality organisation would never condone this kind of behavior -- on or off the clock.
Are these few a bad example? Perhaps. But an organisation with this kind of "leadership" in its ranks is seriously compromised. It is no longer about delivering a quality product, it is about how to screw the system (kids, parents, and the Governor).
Are all teachers like this? Probably not.
The bottom line is this: If you have poor leadership, it infects the whole organisation. I have seen it, and you have too. Business, sports, community, politics -- it is all about the leadership.
Can the New Jersey unions correct themselves? Doubtful.
Well, I gotta go and get ready for "short Wednesday" where the teachers go off and get their mid week drunk on.
