Class Dismissed For Saunders
Nathan Saunders' forced march back to the classroom has ended. After a meeting yesterday with Chancellor Michelle A. Rhee, the WTU general vice president reported that he had been restored to full time union duties.
Saunders was dispatched to teach social studies at Eastern High School last month after deputy chancellor Kaya Henderson said she discovered that his leave of absence had never been properly renewed. Paperwork subsequently unearthed by Saunders showed that union president George Parker, who has warred with Saunders for years, happened to exclude him when working out changes in leave procedures last year.
Rhee, who has enough issues with the WTU, seemed to want no part of this internecine drama. Saunders said the paperwork restoring his leave was waiting for him when he arrived at her office. He added that they had a "productive" meeting on other issues, including the importance of keeping union members up to speed on policy changes, and agreed to stay in touch.
"We agreed to continue to talk about other issues," he said.
