State Bill Prohibiting School Administrators from Collective Bargaining is Defeated

By Sahid Fawaz

The war on educators met defeat in South Dakota on Friday.

The Reading Eagle reports:

“State lawmakers have rejected a bill that would have banned public school administrators from collective bargaining in right-to-work South Dakota.

The House Education Committee voted 8-6 Friday against the proposal, which critics called unnecessary.

House Speaker Mark Mickelson, the bill’s sponsor, says there are times when the actions of the union run contrary to schools’ mission to provide good, free education. He says at least 10 school districts, including Sioux Falls and Rapid City, have administrative collective bargaining units.”
