Subject: Walk Through--Not FriendlyI know schools are praying these shits will find something that will keep the school open. But Sternberg is a ghoul in the tradition of John White. What I would do is slam every door in their faces and refuse to cooperate. What I want so see is them running from the school with rotten fruit raining down on their heads. It won't do any good in keeping the school open but it sure will make people feel good and regain some self-respect.
Deputy Chancellor Mark Sternberg and his assistant will be visiting for a few hours. This is not a ‘friendly’ visit. They are looking for mistakes. They will come across as ‘nice’ and as ‘your best friend’ but they are wolves in sheep’s clothing. Be sure that your class is rigorous, engaged, active, differentiated. Classroom walls should have current artifacts (or at least take down anything older than Fall 2011). I will try to let you know where they will be and when but no guarantee.
You know in British Columbia every teacher refused to fill out report cards. There has to be some action of mass refusal that will not allow Tweed to do business as usual in a comfortable manner. But without a union to organize these actions the wolves in sheep's clothing will continue to lead the sheep to the slaughter. My question is, are our union leaders also wolves in sheep's clothing?
