Must read oped by teacher Arthur Goldstein who points out how many are at fault in failing kids by allowing huge classes to persist- DOE, NYSED for its refusal to make DOE comply with the law, arbitrators, and the UFT for not pushing for improvements in class size in the contract for fifty years.
At the UFT Executive Board MORE/New Action raised a resolution urging the UFT to "vigorously enforce existing contractual class size regulations." This was voted down by leadership.
It was great seeing Arthur at the MORE retreat yesterday. Four hours of retreating followed by a few Happy Hours.
I'm back there somewhere.
