The Unrepresented

Harry Bernstein's thought-provoking June 13 column, "Union Nudges L.A. School Board Toward Power Sharing," makes a disquieting reference to the composition of the soon-to-be-formed central school council. According to the column, the only teachers permitted to be on the council would be those belonging to the teachers' union. As one concerned with the rights of all teachers I see this provision as inimical to the interests of those teachers who choose not to spend $400 a year to support a group whose leadership doesn't or can't represent everyone.

Editor's Note: Union teachers are expected to be elected to the central council because of the majority that union members command in the school system, but nonunion teachers are eligible for election to the council.
