Arpie: Things Will Get Uglier

Arpie (re: 3 anti-Luna teachers in hot water): It’s also worth noting that these three teach in a very conservative district. If I were to generalize from what I know, which is that they are married and only one of them is an IEA member, they are likely conservative themselves and just lashing out at the circumstances they and the rest of Idaho’s teachers are finding ourselves in. This is going to get a lot uglier, and we are going to see all manner of boycotts and work slowdowns as the next year and a half -- until the 2012 referendum -- unfold.

Question: Do you expect teacher boycotts and work slowdowns as a result of the Tom Luna "reforms"?
