"Obama and Aaron Schock have similar qualities in that they listen more than they talk," says Terry Knapp, the former president of the Peoria Teachers Union, who has met both men.
"I was concerned about his being, as a freshman, being independent enough," Knapp says.

Illinois Association of School Boards: School Board Journal

"Teachers need protection," said Terry Knapp, who retired from teaching biology after a 38-year career and became a union activist.
Knapp is a member of both the IEA and the IFT, where he served eight years as board vice-president and president of the Peoria teacher's union. Knapp's union activities began after he was fired for speaking to a school board member about filing a grievance over repayment of a $34 parking bill. The parking tab ended up costing his district employer close to $1 million after legal fees, fines and back pay. And, Knapp regained his job in the end. Since then, Knapp learned how to be a union activist. He has bargained contracts and counseled "victims" of school districts' whims and caprices. "Absolute power corrupts absolutely," Knapp said. And, they signed it," Knapp added. Knapp, whose Peoria connections include employees of Caterpillar Inc. where workers are now hired on a two-tiered system and pay maxes out at just under $15 per hour, laments the state of union membership today. "People don't get it today," Knapp said.
