UFT is so excited about lobby day this year that they only have places for 15 Queens high school teachers. Odd way to handle crisis.Tweets from chapter leaders in response to Ed Notes post:
Twice last year I went to Albany on my own time & $ to attend @nysut rallies but now no space on the bus? I signed up but DR said I may not be included because they want people who haven't gone before. Hmmm
Let me get out of satire mode and get real --- hundreds of school trips to Albany for a civics lesson. Let the press scream and holler while supporting Eva. Get teachers to take a personal day if their school doesn't go -- I mean thousands of teachers taking a personal day -- a legit reason too.
But de Blasio, from Boston, has deflated balls. Mulgrew doesn't even have to be from Boston to have deflated balls.
