Just as we expected, the Mackinac Center is upping its efforts to get members to leave MEA. They’ve already sent unsolicited messages to members’ computers and phones; now they’re sending postcards explaining their version of MEA members’ “rights” and liability insurance. But also, just as expected, their information isn’t reliable.
That’s what new State Superintendent Brian Whiston told the State Board of Education yesterday. While the Senate approved SB 103 in May to establish a statewide teacher evaluation system, the House Education Committee took no action before the Legislature adjourned for the summer.
If you’re a president or treasurer looking for assistance with managing your local’s finances, or you have some questions about MEA’s membership system, the BFCL training, “Money Matters,” may be just what you need.
