As someone who has worked in a non-union school, I can tell…what violates trust between teachers and administrators. Knowing that you can be fired for your personality. Knowing that there is a fresh crop of well-intentioned, starry-eyed Teach for America kids who can take your place in the time it takes to make a phone call. Knowing that you will be scorned for using your allotted sick days and guilted into working through lunch, during prep time, and hours after the final school bell rings.
