Democrats in the Michigan House are pushing bills they say will give teachers more sway in their classroom assignments.
House Bills 4354 and 4355 would reverse current rules that prohibit unions and districts from collectively bargaining over policies on teacher placement and evaluations, as well as on decisions relating to staff reductions.
The Democrats in the legislature say teachers should have more of a voice in the decisions about what classes teachers are placed in, but critics say the proposed bills would hamstring school administrators and result in class placement that’s based on seniority, rather than skills.
The House Labor Committee is expected to discuss the bills Thursday.
They want to make sure that leftist indoctrination remains enshrined in the classroom.
