Re "Union takeover of policy sends schools back in time" (Page E6, April 27):

The essence of the article is that the teachers' union objects to student progress as part of teacher evaluations, even 20 percent of them.

So here's the screaming question for the union: If a teacher's students have learned nothing during their time in his/her classroom, how can the teacher call themselves a teacher?

It's outrageous and appalling for the teachers' union to oppose student progress as part of evaluations of Sacramento's teaching staff.
