Little Rock Teachers Reject Contract Proposal

Vote no confidence in superintendent.
LITTLE ROCK, AR - About 200 members of the Little Rock Education Association met Tuesday night and voted unanimously to reject a contract proposal from the Little Rock School District, according to union president Cathy Koehler.

The same group voted, with one dissent, in a "no confidence" vote in Superintendent Dexter Suggs, only on the job since summer.

The contract is only part of teachers' unhappiness. Koehler cited an inability to have conversations with the superintendent about issues, as the group had had with past superintendents.

"I would love to have a real conversation with him," she said. But most union concerns go unanswered or are met with monosyllabic answers, she said.
