Board, teachers must be reasonable

 Impasse!

It’s a word that hardly sounds positive when it comes to a negotiation. And yet, it is what the teachers union declared last week before walking out on negotiations for a new contract with the Jefferson County Board of Education.

Not to be the eternal optimist, but designation of an impasse may be just what the doctor ordered, as it will lead to designation of a mediator between two groups that seem to have little trust for each other in a possible standoff where there’s plenty of blame to go around.
