Arthur Goldstein: False stats are nonsense and indefensible. Your strategy has decimated city neighborhoods

I mentored teachers in the Chancellor's District in 2002. If that is a model the UFT is holding up as a solution I have a bridge to sell you. --- Ed Notes

Arthur Goldstein takes on Howard Wolfson

Never forget: Wolfson was a consultant for the UFT. Search Ed Notes for his name for more details.

Today's Daily News says Bloomberg school closings have failed. But for ten years you've been pretending they worked.
sorry, no. New schools far superior to the schools they replaced. Our strategy has been a huge success.
Sorry, no, false stats are nonsense and indefensible. Your strategy has decimated city neighborhoods.
 I have a lot to say about the Weingarten/Mulgrew editorial on closing schools but heading into the city today to go to the World Trade Center memorial and then on to the Tenement Museum. So hopefully, later.

  1. The sooner the schools are removed from mayoral control, the better!

    In the meantime, keep emailing Mayor Bloomberg and Chancellor Walcott your specific complaints:

    Send copies of the emails and responses to anyone and everyone who might find them to be of interest.

    Post the emails and responses on Craigslist, Facebook, New York Teachers Chatboard, etc.

    It'll take a while, but if enough people start writing, things should begin to happen.
