ETFO Ruling -- I Don't Get It

According to this news item that came out yesterday, "T he Elementary Teachers Federation broke the law when it advised members to withdraw from extracurricular activities. " But then later in the article it states " The union said it will abide by the ruling, adding the decision confirms its assertion that the advice to members about withdrawing voluntary services was not a directive. " I don't get it. If the advice was not a directive, then why was it illegal? Can someone explain this to me?

I don't know if I'll be able to finish the course due to my other obligations, but I just thought I would share my first little test program so that my students might benefit. This program reads in a picture file, then simply strips off the red, green, and blue channels and saves the files. I've written the program so it can easily be adapted for other picture files. Simply replace "flower" with the base part of your filename in the img_base_name variable and enter the path to your picture file in the img_path variable. Note th at the OpenCV and the numpy libraries must be installed and that you need to be using Python 2.x.
