Panel for Educational Policy, Feb. 24, 2010: Alev, Khem, Julie, Lisa

CAPE and GEM and a few parent activists were few voices heard standing up for public education in a sea of charter school supporters.

"Where is the UFT?" was a constant refrain we heard last night from reporters and even from some of Klein's Tweedies. Good question as the massive charter school outpouring of parents imprinted an anti public school message, with lots of teacher bashing.

The biggest message left to every public school teacher and parent who supports public schools and every political operative there last night was the utter failure of the UFT, the only agent capable of standing up. But that is nothing new as the UFT did nothing for this meeting, feeling I guess it had done enough on Jan. 26.

  1. Off topic but important is the a heads up that one of Eli Broad's newest ed deform pets, California Sen. Gloria Romero, will be in New York City next week.

    How do I know? Because I just got (gag) Joe Williams' (of DFER) latest e-bulletin (gag) telling everybody so.

    Watch out. The bi-coastal ed deformers are up to something, and most certainly will be having a big pow wow.
