ATR Zombies Invade

When Ariel Sacks' piece, ATRs in the Teachers Lounge, opened with "Strange happenings … There are ATRs in the teacher’s lounge of my school" it got me to thinking there was a touch of, "My God, we've got ATRs. Get the poison spray." A short note to David Bellel, and a short time later, Voila!

  1. News flash on the contract negotiations between the United Federation of Teachers and the New York City Department of Education:

    The UFT is inclined to give in on the ATR (Absent Teacher Reserve) issue, in order to secure a four percent salary increase in the next contract. The leaked word is that the union would accede to the termination (firing, dismissal) of teachers who could not find permanent assignments after six months.
