More This Week in Ed Notes

Besides attending (and writing about) the events listed in the previous post, here are some of the areas I hope to write about this week:

Why does Weingarten embrace holding teachers accountable (See The Chief) when they have absolutely no say in their professions? Why is she grading schools, albeit with an extension (a fairly light extension) of criteria?

The Battle of the Rubber Rooms: Teachers4Action vs. Betsy Combier and the UFT. Or how Betsy got her job at the UFT.

More True Confessions: I bribed kids

Schmidt on Russo: Comments from George

Calling all BloomKlein supporters in the NYC teaching corps

Reader suggestion:
Teacher surveys and the intimidation taking place by administration to score your school well, and mis-represent what services you provide.

  2. Hey Norm,

    I wasn't able to post a response to your questions on NYC Educator's site, so I took the liberty of posting them to my blog. Here you go:

  3. How about a post on the teacher survey and the intimidation taking place by administration to score your school well, and mis-represent what services you provide. Oh, is that just happening at my school? My bad sorry.

  4. Hey Norm,
    How about writing about the items you promised?

    Why does Weingarten embrace holding teachers accountable (See The Chief) when they have absolutely no say in their professions?

    Why is she grading schools, albeit with an extension (a fairly light extension) of criteria?

    The Battle of the Rubber Rooms: Teachers4Action vs. Betsy Combier and the UFT. Or how Betsy got her job at the UFT.

    eager to read about these items in the
    Rubber Room/ Latex Latrine. It helps pass the time while I am imprisoned by the DoE and United To Fuck Teachers (UFT)

    thanks in advance.
