Milwaukee teachers unions makes truly awful attempt to improve public relations

     Talk about a public relations stunt gone awry. 
     
     The Milwaukee Teachers Education Association (MTEA) is sponsoring a “Children’s Week” from April 22 through 29 in hopes of strengthening the bond between the community and the schools.
     
     To kick things off on a positive note, the union asked members to donate a week’s pay to the school system in order to “help reduce burgeoning class sizes,” reports the Journal Sentinel. Union leaders hoped MTEA’s generosity would inspire civic leaders and citizens to follow suit.
     
     But those plans came crashing down this week after MTEA members rejected the idea “by nearly a 3-to-2 margin,” the news site reports.
