My principal told me that the CFE wanted to have a meeting with a group of us. She showed me the email to her. It was NOT from CFE, but it was from Educators 4 Excellence. Evidently they are emailing principals to get THEM to set up meetings of teachers for them! I told her it was NOT CFE, but this group that was funded by Gates and wanted to get teachers to support ending seniority lay-offs and merit pay. She said that she would discard the email.
Is E4E given access to principals' DOE emails? To what extent is the DOE assisting E4E?
