D.C. teachers' union backs broad five-year goals

As a follow up to my latest entry the other day on the WTU-DCPS Contract Negotiations, I read this article which is coming out tomorrow Wednesday, February 4, 2009 in The Washington Times...

The Washington Teachers' Union made public Tuesday a summary of its revised contract proposal to D.C. public schools officials.

The two-page summary makes clear the proposal was designed to support the broad goals of the school system's five-year education plan.

The union proposal, presented over the weekend to the city, also calls for the creation of centers for teachers to receive additional training and share materials and resources. They would be modeled after those in New York City, Miss LeNoir (WTU Communications Director) said.

"We have received the Washington Teachers' Union's proposal and we look forward to reviewing it," said Dena Iverson, spokeswoman for D.C. public schools. The Washington Times
