Ed. Notes reprint from Spring ‘99.
Here are the names of the groups and their basic platforms:
SERIOUSLY INACTIVE CAUCUS (SIC): Will do nothing after announcing they are going to run.
TELEPATHIC INDEPENDENT CAUCUS (TIC): Will put out no leaflets, but will reach out by projecting their thoughts.
PULL-OUT INDEPENDENT PARTY (PIP): Proposes that every teacher should be a pull-out teacher.
PUSH IN CAUCUS (PIC): Split from PIP. Wants every teacher to be a push-in teacher.
PARTY OF ENERGY CAUCUS (PEC): Wants a health club in every school.
New Inaction Caucus (NIC): Self-explanatory.
PAY EVERY TEACHER A LOT (PETAL): Advocates accelerated payments for teachers.
CAUCUS in OPPOSITION TO POLITICAL ENTITIES (COPE): Union shouldn’t engage in political activity.
Rumor has it that PIC, PAC and PEC will merge and be known as: PIC ‘A PAC ‘O PEC 'O.
