  1. If attendance is low, it may have to do with coordinating an event during a vacation break. For many teachers, today is the day to run because it's such a short vaca. I hope future dates take the school calendar into account.

  2. Understand. So much going on on Fridays -- next week is a NYCORE event for the election.

  3. I thing that the illustration you chose for the article is great and perfectly summarizes the approach of most of the union members. It's not enough to be a member and not to do anything. Then you will get the same frustration as a member of the gym who does not see any results, because s/he doesn't attend any trainings.
