    Bernie Sanders Just Gained The ENDORSEMENT of Nevada’s Largest Teachers Union

    “….Sen. Bernie Sanders won the endorsement of an influential teachers’ union in Nevada on Tuesday morning, a key sign of support in the early voting state where unions have significant political power.

     

    “We appreciated that Senator Sanders came to us, very much reached out to us and wanted to speak to us,” said Clark County Educational Association president Vikki Courtney told BuzzFeed News on Monday night. Sanders was the clear leader in a recent straw poll of union members, she said, which was a major factor in the decision.

     

    The union represents 19,000 teachers and other educators in Las Vegas, and is the largest teachers’ union in Nevada. The Clark County School District is the fifth largest school district in the country.

    Looks like teachers don’t believe Bernie is a misogynist.

    But do they throw chairs?

        @incognito I had a design instructor who threw design projects across the room if they didn’t measure up. The attrition rate was quite high. After a few weeks the only students left were the really good ones who hadn’t had a project thrown and the tough nuts who wanted to show him “he couldn’t throw my project and get away with it.”

    Our nation’s teachers and nurses are the best. They are professionals at ground zero who deal with the real issues our communities face on a daily basis.
