Anger is a symptom of poor workplace morale. Most of us find a way to cope with these challenges. I’m not just trying to sell you something here, but the way I cope with it is my membership in the CCEA. It affords me the security in meetings to ask questions that are hard. In the past it has given me the security to appear on television holding the district’s feet to the fire in regard to security. It gives me a feeling of having at least some control over my environment. I hope you find it comforting too. Comfort in our present environment makes union dues seem cheap.

...[P]olling conducted for FEA in December found that registered voters felt strongly that public schools deserved better support. That survey found that:
- 65 percent approve of the job their public schools are doing.
- 70 percent rate their teachers positively.
- 90 percent say teachers are NOT the problem in our schools.
- Two-thirds say teachers are paid too little.
- And nearly 70 percent say the Legislature should leave the retirement system for teachers alone despite the cost to taxpayers.
