Manipulating the Masses

Hi Norm,
Why are they advertising for the hiring of teachers at Achievement First Charter School? That's the school that is encroaching on our building and forcing part of the mess we are in, making teachers move their classrooms. There have been other problems with this school in the building, but this is not the place for that.
Today there were folks outside our school trying to get parents to sign individual forms advocating for mayoral control! My principal immediately asked them to move away from the building and then spoke to the parent coordinator. She wanted her to inform the parents NOT to sign this form. We were so busy watching children, saying our goodbyes and packing that I don't know how long they were around and how many parents, if any signed. The nerve of whoever they were. I wonder if this went on at other schools.
