Members Vote to Oppose Central Office Bill

Members of the Washington Teachers' Union voted last night to oppose a move by D.C. Schools Chancellor Michelle A. Rhee to fire central office employees "at will," an indication that rank-and-file teachers disagree with her first sweeping effort to overhaul city schools.

About 250 teachers, social workers, psychologists and other school workers voted during the union's representative assembly. The gathering usually draws a smaller crowd of union delegates, but members eager to have their say on the personnel proposal also took up seats in the auditorium at Bertie Backus Middle School in Northeast Washington.
