Alice Mercer: Veteran Teachers Not a Priority in High Priority Schools
Education Week - almost 4 years
Guest post by Alice Mercer. All eyes are on Chicago, and the record school closures taking place in that city. But this is a drama being played out in cities across the country, including my own, as "right-sizing", the Broad way, takes over. By now, many would have (or should have) heard that in Chicago, the projected savings have disappeared (or didn't exist in the first place), and in the face of massive protests, the mayor has thrown $55M to a classic "Edifice complex " (my husband's term for hubristic public works projects). Public will has been ignored, and the press has been muzzled. Now we come home to Sacramento. Once again, projected savings - questionable; public will - ignored; press inquiries - we'll get back to you...much later; last, but not least, reality-based decision-making - completely absent. Let me share the sad tale of woe that has befallen my district (and to a greater degree, at least 50 teachers). When schools close or their enrollment declines, ...

Are Education "Reformers" Becoming Privatizers?
Education Week - over 4 years
Quite a few "liberal" education reformers ought to be doing a bit of soul searching these days, as their movement seems to be veering into territory previously occupied by segregationists and anti-union business and political leaders. Diane Ravitch has begun calling people whom we used to know as "education reformers" by the more loaded term "privatizers." In California, we are seeing where this path is leading some of our state's most prominent "liberal" politicians, and it is not pretty. The former state senate Democratic majority leader, Gloria Romero, has become the "face" of Proposition 32, an initiative funded by the Koch brothers, which will disallow unions from making political contributions. The initiative has language that makes it appear even-handed, but due to court decisions such as Citizens United, corporations will continue to have few limits on their ability to make contributions. Education reform has long been an easy ticket to political credibility fo ...

Tom Morello to rage against Prop. 32
LATimes - over 4 years
Tom Morello has found a new target to rage against: Proposition 32. The former guitarist for Rage Against the Machine will join veteran activist super-group Crosby, Stills & Nash in Los Angeles next week to raise awareness and money to defeat the November ballot measure, which would make major changes to California's campaign finance system. The central provision of the initiative would eliminate political contributions by payroll deduction, the primary fundraising tool of unions. So far, the labor-backed opposition campaign has raised more than $41 million to defeat Proposition 32, airing TV and radio ads that paint the measure as a deceptive corporate power grab. Morello, who performed in New York City last week to support the Occupy Wall Street movement, will open for Crosby, Stills & Nash. In a statement, the guitarist said businesses are backing Proposition 32 because they want to "tilt the playing field even more in their direction and away from real people." T ...

Proposition 32 has drawn fire for a provision to ban payroll-deducted money from being used for political purposes. On election night in 2005, David Matanga of Montebello, awaits results of a ballot measure that required public employee unions to get written consent from members annually before spending any of their dues money on political activity. The measure lost, but the issue is back in the form of Proposition 32 on the November ballot. Derek Cressman Gloria Romero

Democrat takes on teachers union in Prop. 32 ad
LATimes - over 4 years
A former Democratic lawmaker takes on California's largest teachers union in a new ad for Proposition 32, the November ballot measure that promises to eliminate special-interest money in politics. In a two-minute Web video posted on YouTube this week, former state Sen. Gloria Romero urges voters to support the initiative. Sitting in a classroom, she looks at the camera and recalls her past battles with the California Teachers Assn. as chairwoman of the Senate Education Committee -- though she does not name the union. "I worked hard to give every child in California a chance to get a great education. But I learned something as Democratic leader in the Senate: The big-moneyed special interests don't want the change we need," she says in the ad. "And these special interests will spend millions of dollars to stop it.” Proposition 32 would prohibit both unions and corporations from contributing directly to candidates. The initiative would also ban the practice of political con ...

More about why teachers' unions don't like Prop. 32 supporter Gloria Romero
The Sacramento Bee - over 4 years
Following our report on her support of a controversial ballot measure, Los Angeles Democrat Gloria Romero asked The State Worker to expand on why she drew fire from teachers' unions when she served in the state Assembly and Senate. The former Senate majority leader's request came after we reported that Romero supports Proposition 32, the campaign contributions reform initiative on the November ballot. Our Monday post noted that the former state Senate Majority Leader has championed charter schools, which drew fire from teachers' unions. But Romero wanted to be sure that State Worker blog readers understand that organized labor's opposition to her runs deeper. In a follow-up email to our Monday telephone conversation, Romero said this: The ire of the teachers union was less about charter schools than it was about my support for President Obama's Race to the Top program. This entailed dropping the firewall which had existed, making us unable to link teac ...

Bid to curb union spending gets big Democratic backer
LATimes - over 4 years
Proposition 32 just got a big Democratic voice. Former state Sen. Gloria Romero, a Los Angeles Democrat, announced her support this week for the November ballot measure that would ban the practice of political contribution by payroll deduction, the primary method labor unions use to raise political cash. “As someone who has been on the political front lines in Sacramento, I've seen first hand how special interests control the political process," Romero said in a statement. "Through their vast resources, special interests are able to hold lawmakers hostage to their agenda. This isn’t a partisan or ideological issue -- all Californians deserve elected officials who will work for them, rather than special interests." In some ways, Romero's support is not surprising. Throughout her tenure in Sacramento she battled publicly with some of the state's most powerful unions, namely the California Teachers Assn. and the California Correctional Peace Officers Assn. In her statement, she c ...

Former California Democratic Senate leader endorses Proposition 32
The Sacramento Bee - over 4 years
Former Senate Majority Leader Gloria Romero today said she is endorsing Proposition 32, the November ballot measure that would change California's campaign finance law and limit unions ability to raise political cash. The announcement marks the first time that a high-profile Democrat has publicly supported the measure, which unions have blasted as a disguised effort by business interests to hobble organized labor's political influence. "I've studied it carefully," said the Los Angeles Democrat during a telephone interview this afternoon. "This is as balanced a measure as we can achieve at this time." Proposition 32 would ban both unions and corporations from contributing directly to candidates, although both could still fund independent expenditure campaigns to support candidates. But the measure also eliminates unions' primary method of raising political spending money -- payroll deductions. Corporations, by contrast, raise the bulk of their political funds from e ...

U.S. Mayors Back Parents Seizing Control Of Schools
Huffington Post - almost 5 years
* Teachers' unions fiercely oppose "parent trigger" laws * Many Democratic mayors split with unions on issue * Opponents say makes schools less accountable By Stephanie Simon June 17 (Reuters) - Hundreds of mayors from across the United States this weekend called for new laws letting parents seize control of low-performing public schools and fire the teachers, oust the administrators or turn the schools over to private management. The U.S. Conference of Mayors, meeting in Orlando, Florida, on Saturday unanimously endorsed "parent trigger" laws aimed at bypassing elected school boards and giving parents at the worst public schools the opportunity to band together and force immediate change. Such laws are fiercely opposed by teachers' unions, which stand to lose members in school takeovers. Union leaders say there is no proof such upheaval will improve learning. And they a ...

Gloria Romero Roses: Pay Equity
Huffington Post - almost 5 years
If you ask your mother, grandmother, daughter or sister, pay discrimination based on gender still exists. Equal pay for equal work should not be a partisan issue, and the Paycheck Fairness Act (PFA) is a common sense solution to strengthen the 1963 Equal Pay Act. Yet like so many issues in Washington, a proposal to tackle this economic issue is being stalled by partisan gridlock. From early in my career, I saw that pay inequity was a real issue facing women in the work place. I was working for a property management company here in Miami, I found myself in competition for a position against a male colleague for a promotion. In addition to being a few months from an MBA from the University of Miami, I had more years of property management experience compared to my competitor. I worked hard to get the position, going through multiple interviews with the board and making a strong case for my credentials. Although I was selected for the position, I was informed that my salary ...

Newton: A split among Democrats
LATimes - almost 5 years
Especially in California, the party is deeply divided on the question of how best to improve schools. Gloria Romero is a Democrat. She was elected to the California Assembly as a Democrat and later to the state Senate. She served as Democratic leader of the Senate, the first woman to do so. Ben Austin is a Democrat too. He worked in the White House under President Clinton and was an ardent supporter of Barack Obama. Both Austin and Romero support reform of the nation's education system, and when Romero helped found an organization to push that effort, she and her co-founders (fellow Democrats) called it Democrats for Education Reform.
