SUBSCRIPT: Should 'Emerging Leaders' include the principals' spies who report about union meetings to the boss?

As the leadership of the Chicago Teachers Union becomes more complex over the next several months, Substance will continue reporting what some people refer to as "contradictions" over how the union and its leadership are operating. For today, a question: Does the union's CORE caucus really think that a person who reports to the principals about union meetings deserves to be in a leadership position -- or to be featured here and elsewhere as an "emerging leader"? Details to follow.
