Website ban lifted Tuesday (+TSTA EMAIL) Teacher union site blocked, unblocked by district

http://www.oaoa.com/articles/website-87801-ban-ecisd.html

ECISD’s superintendent on Tuesday reversed a ban denying district employees access to a union website following a Texas State Teachers Association email asking employees to take a survey to gauge their morale.

Late Tuesday afternoon, Hector Mendez, superintendent of Ector County Independent School District, told the IT department to remove a controversial filter that had blocked all employees from the Texas State Teachers Association website.

But the almost four day block of the website had already made an impact and left association members disappointed in the district.

“I thought it was juvenile,” Chuck Isner said of the fact that the website was ever banned. Isner, regional president for the TSTA, later added, “Someone apparently wanted to send us a message.”


Lots more at the link. Perfect look at the arrogance and dishonesty of the administration here - they actually blocked a survey on employee morale.

3. Sounds like the district's servers blocked the union's site

Our servers block YouTube and Facebook and porn sites, etc. They can block any site they want so the employees can't go to those sites on district computers.

At least that's what I think is going on.

4. Yes, that's exactly what's going on.

Then tried to pretend they didn't know what the largest teacher's association in Texas was.

Admin can't seem to get the message: if you don't want to check on morale, it's bad.
