How interesting that E4E is allowed into schools by the DOE officials to push the political agenda pressuring the UFT to give in on ed evaluation. This is a blatant abuse by the DOE. I bet here is a law being violated somewhere here.
Imagine if MORE were allowed to do PD with its political agenda and the howls of protest. It seems there was some pushback but where is the UFT on this issue? When I was invited to speak to teachers, not during official PD but on their own time, there were howls of protest from the Unity chapter leader and push back from the district reps.
Someone at Truman should check the sign-in books and get the names.
I received a request from someone at the school for more info in E4E.
Here is the email with a link
At Monday's PD, we were visited by Educators4Excellence. For your consideration, it is funded by Bill Gates [see article]. This is an interest group advocating a political agenda.People at the school want more info on E4E. If you have some stuff to share leave the link in a comment and I'll send the info along.
