ICE's Jeff Kaufman Dissects Educators 4 Excellence and Judges Them "Antiunion"

I interviewed Jeff Kaufman, chapter leader of Aspirations HS in Brooklyn,  on July 12 for almost an hour about the tenure situation at his school which has been featured in 2 items in the press (Daily News and Gotham Schools). At the end of the interview I asked him about his relationship to the E4E teachers in the school since he is such a strong advocate of teacher rights. Jeff' describes his interaction with them, including how he resolved a grievance one of them filed. He points to how he judges them anti-union.

"diametrically opposed to basic union precepts" - that's about it.

Most of E4Es don't understand the venom with which so many administrators act and how teachers are denied their right to truly teach by edudrones in so many schools.

PS - Could not be more pleased with the results you get when you google "E4E." Tell me I'm wrong.

Has anyone else noticed that E4E has been very quiet in the last two months or so.

They failed in their mission. Perhaps, God willing, we have heard the last of Syd and Evan.
