Two New Jersey Teachers Union presidents were suspended this week after James O’Keefe’s bombshell exposé revealed the organization’s willingness to cover-up child abuse and other illegal activities.
According to the Jersey Journal, the union bosses came under fire after Project Veritas published the undercover videos online, highlighting methods taken to protect teachers who physically harm their students.
“The board finds the comments that were made deeply disturbing and inappropriate because they in no way reflect the views, and core beliefs and values, of our school district, or of the professionalism of our educators, and other employees,” said a statement from the local school district.
“We have no governing control over the UCEA, its policies or procedures — we are separate and distinct entities. The UCEA does not speak for our school district,” it added.
“I’m here to defend even the worst people,” admits a union boss in the video. “We do turn [these reports] around to where, if it was a physical punch, it wasn’t a punch. It was a shove.”
