Shawnee Mission Super Bowl Skip Day For Teachers During Labor Dispute

Behind the paywall, a fight over Johnson County politics and money . . . Here's the link tease to suburban white ladies pushing back:

Hundreds of Shawnee Mission teachers miss class the day after Chiefs win Super Bowl

More than 320 Shawnee Mission school teachers took the day off Monday after the Kansas City Chiefs won Super Bowl LIV. District officials said they had an exceptionally high number of staff and teachers absent. "Out of 2,100 employees, as of 9:07 this morning, we had 323 sub requests," said David Smith, spokesman for the Johson County district.

What do you expect for a bunch of drunken fools. Why they all want raises, need the extra cash to party with.

Fire over 300 teachers mid-year? How do you immediately replace over 15% of the SMSD educator work force with certified qualified replacements on a whim?

It's not even remotely possible. Failing grade for you.

You need to join the rest of us in the real world.

You could replace those teachers with regular ol' people and get the same results. These teachers are so full of themselves. Fire them

Blue Valley is the best district in the city and they did away with unions. No one supports SMSD teachers. Fuck off

^^^ Idiot or liar. Probably both.

Blue Valley is still union. They separated from the state NEA leadership to form their own local leadership a few years ago, but it is absolutely union.

You can't hire just anyone. State law regulates the certification process and education standards that must be met by teachers. There is no possible way to fire and restaff 15% of this workforce mid-year on a whim. Again, you are an idiot and should STFU when you have no idea what your posting about.
