Cutting Down Careers Before They Can Grow

With tenure being a hot topic it’s important to understand what happens to those educators who do not have tenure protections. Teachers are the eyes and ears of parents throughout the school day. They are often retaliated against with the threat of being fired. The mere threat alone can be used to negatively control and individual and be worse than the actual firing.

The NYC DOE assigns a problem code to every non-tenured teacher who has their probationary tenure period discontinued. They are then barred from teaching in any school in the the system. EVEN IF A PRINCIPAL WANTS TO HIRE THEM.

New Action Caucus of the UFT is holding a press conference outside of Tweed on September 2, 2014. Please share and attend, so we can bring awareness and put an end to this vicious epidemic. Over 600 new teachers have quietly lost their careers in just the last two years alone.  Many of them for speaking out for the children. The negative effect on the schools and students is inconceivable. To make matters worse is that the de Blasio and Fariña administration continue this slaughter of careers.

Don’t Tread on Educators (DTOE) stands in solidarity with their union brothers and sisters for this cause and has created a petition as well

PETITION TO SAVE CAREERS OF DISCONTINUED TEACHERS

Unjust, unfair firing of probationary teachers – give them a second chance.

 

Press conference

Tuesday, September 2, 4:30 PM

in front of the Department of Education (Tweed), 52 Chambers Street.

 

Stephanie (Barchitta) Casertano  PS3 Staten Island and

Dana Parisi PS253 Brooklyn,

both discontinued, will speak briefly, will deliver their appeals to Carmen Fariña, and will be available for interview.

 

Under the Bloomberg / Klein administration, many principals were hired based on management, not educational/pedagogical skill. While some grew to be fine principals, hundreds remained incompetent and became abusive. And as probationers can be fired without cause, hundreds of probationary teachers were unjustly discontinued and prohibited from working anywhere in the NYC Department of Education.

 

The teachers here today could work elsewhere in the system – other principals want them. They spent many years of college preparation, and were fired without being given proper support. But they are unfairly barred. They are asking the Chancellor to review their discontinuances. And we urge the Chancellor to review all the discontinuances of incompetent principals.
