If you don't think there's war has been and is brewing - and will continue to brew in the Dem Party -- this one's for you.
In a listserve discussion of mayoral candidates, those in support of charters were being identified and echoing one of her blog posts, Diane Ravitch said, "Morales said she favors school choice, so strike her. "
Note: On the debate Morales took the strongest stand AGAINST charters, but some progressives have doubted her true commitment.
But then this comment came from a now retired person who was very tight with the UFT hierarchy until retirement:
She [Morales] should not even be a candidate...thank the so-called circular firing squad Dem progressives that are driving our City into the ground more than any GOP ever did!
-- if there is a credible threat to Unity in next year's UFT elections, just watch the fur fly with red-baiting ala Republican playbook - being played out. In fact Trump may be writing the Unity script - and if the opposition every did win, Unity will be calling Stop the Steal and invade the Delegate Assembly by climbing the walls of 52 Broadway with grappling tools.
