On the PPTA Blog I asked the following questions:
Given the PPTA’s stance on how to treat a student teacher if he is employed by a Charter school what does this mean for all the teachers currently employed by Charter schools?
Do the PPTA intend to blacklist from employment in State schools every single teacher who has previously worked in a Charter school?
Will they pressure State High School Principals and BOTs to not interview or employ teachers who have previously worked in a Charter school or will they be welcomed back to the PPTA-approved fold?
Remember that the majority of teachers currently working in Charter schools have previously worked in State schools and have paid union fees in the past.
I received the below response.
PPTA members will decide on the basis of this conference paper.
