Good Morning

In a Grinchworthy move, a school in Vermillion Parish threw into the trash an envelope with flood relief funds raised by the Associated Professional Educators of Louisiana (A+PEL). The school’s secretary tossed the letters simply because she saw A+PEL’s logo on the envelopes. A+PEL is perceived as competition by the Louisiana Association of Educators and the Louisiana Federation of Teachers. http://bit.ly/2gSyWCo
