Cindy Marten, ELL, ELST, San Diego Unified Board of Education, San Diego Unified School District, SDUSD
Back in July and in numerous posts since then, District Deeds has called out Superintendent Cindy Marten for improperly removing ELST’s from the most neediest of SDUSD Schools.
Here are the blog posts: ELL/ELST Removal Blog Posts
Now there is even more proof.
According to this SDEA ELST Settlement Letter to Union Members to SDEA AR’s and CR’s the SDEA President informs the membership that:
“When the District directed every school to eliminate one position last June, it violated many sections of the Transfer timeline. And also took away Site Governance Teams’ rights to go through shared decision-making before eliminating a bargaining unit position (for example, the ELST’s at many schools). Those violations continued this fall, when even more schools were instructed to cut their ELST’s.”
In other words, Superintendent Marten AND the Board of Education violated the SDEA Union Contract IN ADDITION TO VIOLATING THE TITLE 1 RULES as outlined in the GIVE US THE VOTE – Introduction where we showed how she violated the Title1 Part A, App Guidelines.
So now, the Union has been made whole and Marten and SDUSD Board of Education balanced their budget.
And the ELL students and families…and all the schools that have illegally lost the support promised in the No Child Left Behind Act…what have they gotten?
They lost the ELST and Teacher supports and get nothing in return.
Thank You Cindy Marten
One of the most incompetent Superintendents in the history of the SDUSD.

Thank you for your timely and fair reporting. I knew that the teacher unions were powerful but I always thought that because it’s our children that teachers are providing a service to, the unions would at the very least ask for some type of educational compensation for our students.
Rodriguez elemen. will be presenting the SPSA to parents later this month; as an SSC parent member, I am outraged at how teachers allowed their union to settle the ELST matter without asking that it also make our students and their families educationally whole.
We need a parent union!

I read on Twitter where a Union Rep said they’ll start considering students needs when students start paying Union dues! We need a Student Union!
