Teachers and union leaders convene in Pacific Grove

Ahh. Asilomar. It always bring out the best in all of us, and among all of us.

 This past weekend, about 400 teachers and members of California Teachers Association gathered in our beautiful corner of the world to listen to Dean Vogel, president of the association, Yvonne Walker, president of Service Employees International Union Local 1000, the state employee union, and about current issues in the schools such economic justice and school funding, the history of unions, state budget updates, the Common Core State Standards, labor law rights, and the new Local Control Funding Formula.

 Here's Dean Vogel chatting with some teachers.

And here Yvonne Walker talks to John Colombo of MPUSD. (Both photos courtesy of Mike Myslinski of CTA)

If you're curious about what Vogel had to say, here's a link to a portion of his speech. And here a link to a portion of Walker's as well.
