Portland teachers threaten school shutdown if their school district refuses to provide subsidized housing for students

Sharing is Caring!

Teachers in Portland, Ore., are on track to strike if their school district refuses to provide subsidized housing for poor public school students and lobby for expanded rent control, an approach that has led to school shutdowns in other liberal cities as powerful teachers’ unions pursue left-wing priorities.

After months of negotiations with Portland Public Schools, the Portland Association of Teachers on August 22 warned its members they “may be heading towards a strike,” citing the district’s failure to agree on a “transformative contract.” Included in the impasse is a union proposal to create a district-led subsidized housing initiative, which would see the district identify land it owns that it could “convert” into Section 8 housing for local families. The union is also pushing its district to “actively lobby and advocate for” expanded rent control laws in Portland, union documents reviewed by the Washington Free Beacon show.

Clowns over clowns. As long as THEY didn’t have to pay for it.
