"I'm not happy the leadership of the HHEA led our teachers out on strike," board member Carl Fisher said.
"The deal was more expensive than I feel the community can afford. I'm afraid it will put future funding in jeopardy."
This total lack of class and integrity does not demonstrate a willingness to move forward with a productive attitude on the part of the board. Mr. Fisher must be speaking for the entire board since his comments appear as the exclusive public statement from the Huber Heights board. His lack of competence is further revealed when he blames the leadership of the HHEA. The union was obviously united behind its’ leaders, and for Fisher to blame the leadership for the strike is short-sighted, childish, and just plain wrong. My guess is that the teachers got a deal they deserved, and that Kirby, Fisher, and the rest of this unimpressive cast of characters on the board are unhappy with their loss.
In a teacher’s strike there are no winners. But, there’s nothing worse than a sore loser.
We hope to do a complete wrap-up this weekend, though we are waiting on sources from both sides to confirm details.
