E4E's Lori Wheal Declares Herself a Replaceable of the Highest Order

Gee Lori Wheal, how about "advancing" by just teaching? Maybe focus on advancing the kids rather than yourself.
Lori Wheal is leaving because she can't keep her little job and will now go into ed policy.
"The decision to leave the classroom was among the most difficult I’ve ever made, but I feel like my career is stuck in neutral, with no clear path of advancement."

Wheal is one of the "master" teachers losing her job.
What's the matter Lori? being an ATR doesn't appeal to you


You are right. This was no sudden decision. E4E is a Gates-funded anti-teacher org.

Talk Back
Brooke Wacha
Brooke Wacha discusses the need to ensure that all students’ needs are considered and all teachers’ voices are included when making education policy.
Brooke teaches high school in a 6-1-1 setting at PS223Q, a District 75 school in Queens.
Did teaching meet your expectations?
I expected to be working with low-income students from tough situations, but I ended up working in a District 75 school with a lot of students with autism. ...My job now has really opened up my world to what autism is and what it can be – there’s always something new, someone’s always going to surprise you.

  1. Where do they get these people? The arrogance, vanity, self-delusion and willingness to step on others to get ahead is just off the charts.

    Or perhaps they are some kind of evil, three dimensional Bots, or Replicants that have been engineered in the sub-basement laboratory of The New Teacher Project?

  2. The prerequisite clothing for the male Bots can be found on the pages of JCREW (ie. Ludlow suits type...slim fit tailored look). Very thin. Glasses. Two days worth of beard ala George Michael.

    It is so frightening. My bet is on the weekend these same male Bots wear small fedoras. Oh so hip, these "hipster" educator Bots.
