The honeymoon is over
As you'll see in my story today, the Baltimore Teachers Union contract impasse is getting nasty. After the school board meeting last night, where teachers and their supporters booed him and called for his ouster, Andres Alonso pointed to the editorial he wrote for The Sun the day before the new academic year started. "If I'm still in a honeymoon two months from now, I've yet to begin doing my job," his piece concluded.
It's a month and a half later, and the honeymoon is definitely over. Alonso says it's because he's doing his job. Union leaders say it's because he's not.
Where do you stand? And how do you think this dispute can end? Each side is urging the other to come to a resolution quickly, but neither side seems willing to give in.
