Thumbs down.

Per the resolution:

Whereas incumbent school board member, Steven Sundquist, has routinely voted for motions that a majority of members of the Seattle Education Association oppose, including but not limited to;

Use of the National Council on Teacher Quality survey,

Adoption of a contract with Teach for America (TFA),

Renewal of Maria Goodloe-Johnson’s contract, and

Whereas the SEA has adopted a standing resolution opposing the use of TFA “temps” in Seattle Public Schools, and

Whereas the SEA has not endorsed a single incumbent in this school board race,

Be it resolved that the SEA votes “No Confidence” in Steven Sundquist as director for district map 6 for supporting a contract with Teach for America when there is an abundance of qualified, certificated teaching applicants in SPS.

Hear, Hear!
