"News & Issues" piece on a group called Maine Educators Against Fingerprinting
"News & Issues" piece on a group called Maine Educators Against Fingerprinting and their effort to repeal Maine's law requiring that all school employees be fingerprinted for criminal background checks. As many as 20 teachers will not return to the classroom this year because of their refusal to be fingerprinted, and 40 more vow to forfeit their certification credentials over the next five years. The Maine Education Association views fingerprinting as "bad public policy" and would support a repeal bill. But the Department of Education is banking that the battle over fingerprinting will not be rekindled.
