Mulgrew Bends Over Backwards to NOT Mention "Inconvenient Truth Behind Waiting For Superman"

He'll need a back brace.

So Mulgrew starts the Delegate Assembly talking about how the ed deformers are failing. "Remember 'Waiting for Superman" he says? A few words on how it failed.

Now's the perfect opportunity to tell the delegates how a group of their fellow NYC teachers have made their own movie in response. Not a word. Of course. Why would the UFT leadership bother to mention one of the most effective responses to the ed deformers? Is it that the movie was made by the Grassroots Education Movement which the Unity Caucus leadership behind the scenes is trashing?

In other news Mulgrew is coming off talking real militant. No give on the lawsuit. No deal that he knows of on layoffs. We may need to get 50,000 people out in July. He's got to be joking.

Question from teacher at A Philip Randolph about teachers in the Bronx who last year got U ratings but were already on the plane for vacation. "This must not be allowed to happen this year" he challenges Mulgrew. Mulgrew just shrugs.

Well, I'm at the Skinny Awards dinner drinking lots of beer so I will be parteeeeeeing.

  1. sounds like you need it..enjoy.

  2. Why would he need it. He is a fully retired tier 1 making a fancy unity UFT bargain pension. In the top percentage of Pensioners, and he chooses to form at the mouth about all things wrong with the UFT.

    Don't get me wrong he is a good asset against the likes of E4E and the Tweedsters, but he really needs to take a walk on the beach.

    He had a great career thanks Shanker, Feldman et al.

    A thank you once in a while would be nice.

  3. What a joke our poor Unity slug is. Someone who makes at least $150 grand (I haven't checked the most recent LM-2) in our dues money being a blood sucking Unity bureaucrat. And what a nice pension that will turn out to be - the city pension Plus the Unity pension - it will make my golden tier 1 pension look like chicken feed - I bet it's double mine.

  4. "No deals to layoffs" Not according to today's Daily News.

  5. Hey there, You have done a great job. I will definitely dig it and personally recommend to my friends. I am confident they will be benefited from this site...
