News flash... Stop the Presses... Norm Scott discovers the UFT to blame yet again.... Unity Caucus SlugHow culpable is the UFT in the exoneration of Kathleen Elvin? They have been pretty defensive about the outcome after taking so Shame on the CSA for Defending Elvin's Cheating at... where they defend the back door dealing and attack me for being inconsistent for defending MORE when it does things behind the scenes - as if a small caucus like MORE with ZERO elected positions in the UFT -- should somehow be compared with the Unity/UFT machine complex that owns every means of the UFT communications network and meets at the top levels regularly with Farina and her hench people. Call it a slight difference in access to power. Go read some of their comments at "Shame on the CSA for Defending Elvin's Cheating at...
I replied by making the point that their failure is what this slug is bragging about - their backdoor "nuanced" response, which I admit might be useful at times - but this is their way of operating. Hush hush, keeping people at the school level out of the loop other than the chapter leader - and who knows that what they are telling the CL is even accurate or the truth - I had my suspicions when I got reports. I on the other hand urged an open assault on Elvin both in and outside the school -- and guess what -- they used Ed Notes to engage in that assault -- but imagine if instead of a lowly blog the actually UFT had openly stood up for them and exposed the crap Elvin was doing all along? I know they had the hard info.

Anonymous poster accuses Norm of being a hater....but offers no evidence to prove that what Norm says is inaccurate. The only reason I know about Elvin, Blige and the rest of the admin losers in NYC is because of Norm's blog. I haven’t heard a peep about it from Unity. I too would like to know exactly what Unity did to expose Elvin and get rid of her. Farina's policies with respect to the treatment of teachers are the same as BloomKlein. I haven't heard a peep from Unity about that either. My school, PS 8X, has at least 6 teachers who transferred from abusive schools. The majority of whom have been with us for at least 5 years and
the admins they fled are still in their old schools. One of the admins, Maria Rosado, has been in the Riverdale Press lately. An old CL from that school (207X) used to complain about her at CL meetings back in my CL days 10 years ago.
NOTHING was done then and NOTHING is being done now. Farina is still backing her up and I haven’t heard about her from Unity yet.
Mulgrew cares more about DeBlasio and Farina than his abused membership. If that weren’t true he’d be exposing them as often and with as much tenacity as Norm and other bloggers do. None of the blogs that expose these people are aligned with Unity.
Unity working hard to get rid of abusive admins? You’re full of shit.
$100 to your favorite charity if you prove otherwise! Anyone want to take that bet? Roseanne McCoshTell you what Unity slug, democratize the UFT - remove the retiree vote, give us proportional representation so we don't have winner take all and let's compete on a level playing field and then you can challenge MORE by what it does and what it doesn't do?
I'm willing to play the stealth game when necessary -- but when the people on the ground are included and make that decision -- just as we saw at CPE 1 where it wasn't MORE's decision to play a nuanced stealth game but theirs -- and their actions dictated when we would go public, not our needs to promote ourselves as some groups do or in your case to hide what you are doing so Uncle Ernie and Aunt Carmen don't get mad at you.
