ABQ teachers unhappy with district plan

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Some Albuquerque teachers are unhappy about a new move by the district that would allow it to move teachers from one school to another.

The Teachers Union says teachers invest and build connections with their schools and moving could be a detriment.

But the district says because of staffing issues the moves might be necessary.

The superintendent also says teachers may have to be moved as part of disciplinary action or because the district feels they’re a better fit somewhere else.

The union has asked the district for more information as they continue to negotiate teachers’ contracts.

Both sides have reached an agreement on pay raises for the upcoming school year – right now it’s slated for 3 percent.
