Is MORE Unraveling As It Shifts Left?
There are some disturbing rumors that the opposition caucus MORE has turned sharply leftward and has made some long-term members uncomfortable about remaining in MORE. Apparently, the MORE steering committee has removed those moderate members who opposed this new leftward ideology.
In MORE's proposed contract negotiations, MORE is long on social justice issues and short on teacher rights They want to join forces with the militant far left organizations and proposes risky work stoppages and job actions along with rhetoric that emphasizes civil rights and social equity over teacher rights.
I never joined MORE because of the influence of the left faction, which, if not communist is close to it. Now it seems they have taken control of MORE and has shifted the opposition caucus to the far left and I believe that the moderate members of MORE will be asked to leave or leave on their own and form another opposition caucus, probably ICEUFT.
