Join Marc Sternberg and Tweedies in Happy Hour celebrating their court victory tonight over the thousands of NYC parents, teachers and students who begged them not to close their schools and/or squeeze their students out through damaging charter-co-locations

UPDATED (again): Saturday,July 23, 9am - Did they notice the guy with one arm and a video camera up his nose?
Alas, twas not me.

Here is a report:
TheRadioRahimShow catches up with DOE Deputy Chancellor Marc Sternberg at a happy hour he hosted on Friday, July 22, 2011, to "honor this important moment for New York City's public school families! Please forward - all are welcome!"

We made ourselves welcome, and asked Mr. Sternberg why he thinks closing 22 struggling public schools and squeezing charter schools into 15 more is a cause to celebrate.

Michael Best - at his Worst






This item pulled me out of my funk over my operation on Tuesday for my severely broken wrist. Wish I could go and tape. Hope somebody does. I find Sternberg one of the typically arrogant Tweed POS. Has real John White potential. Find your favorite Tweedie on the recipient list:

This came in from Leonie:

Marc Sternberg and company celebrating their court victory tonight over the thousands of NYC parents, teachers and students who begged them not to close their schools and/or squeeze their students out through damaging charter-co-locations.
He phrases it as "an important moment for New York City's public school families! Please forward - all are welcome!"  But it was instead an important moment for arrogant and heedless Tweed educrats.
Apparently Tribeca Tavern is the venue, at 5 PM at 247 West Broadway, in case others want to go and share in the merriment.

Last night:
New York Supreme Court Justice Paul Feinman denied the UFT and NAACP's request for a preliminary injunction preventing the Department of Education from moving forward to close 22 failing schools and co-locate 15 public charter schools in DOE buildings.  The judge's ruling allows the DOE to move forward with the closings and co-locations.
Tonight:
Come join us for a drink to honor this important moment for New York City's public school families! Please forward - all are welcome!

  4. Norm,
    I hear Joel Klein asked Murdoch to hack all your phones, email/FB/Twitter accounts because you are our version of Woodward and Bernstein for public education. The DoE and Bloomberg are the new Nixons--paranoid. They need to find all your Deep Throats.

    Watch your back!

  5. The fight between the charter school proponents and the public school communities is similar to the budget fight in Washington. There is no common ground and the rejoicing by the Tweed folks shows their true feelings as they celebrate the harm that will come to thousands of school children. Maybe they should follow the impact their victory will have on students in the Rockaway peninsula who now will have to travel many miles each day to receive a public education.

  6. They are all "deep throats"-do you actually think that most of those Tweedies on that list are truly oblivious to what is going on ? If they oppose or do not show support, they are gone-not too many people will take that risk-they just play the game as most people would. Sorry state of affairs
