If there were a huge teacher shortage, all these discontinued teachers would still be working and the administration would be taking the credit for making them great teachers.
It’s all about saving the City huge amount of dollars in future pension payouts, since most tier I retirees have millionaire pensions. City can’t afford to have tenured teachers seeking a pension-too costly. Therefore, the revolving door of one or two years teachers is preferable to that.
These Tier I retirees are the ones carrying the vote for Unity, not the active rank and file. If they changed the rules and not allowed retiree votes to count, Mulgrew and company would be out on there asses big time.
I was waiting for Ms. Jackson Chase to tell the discontinued speakers, alLa John Gotti, “…it’s not personal…. it’s business.”
I’ve been problem coded for a long time. My first offence was encouraging my GED students, who were housed in an ancient school building, to write letters when our school was moved to the 11th floor of a former factory in the garment district directly below a Day Top methadone dispensary. I’m a social studies teacher. I thought I was supposed to “empower” my students to understand and exercise their rights. Giullinani was mayor. Larry Silverstein owned the former factory, which had a total of three drug ‘clinics” doing business as well as another school, Satellite Academy. I then further offended my bosses by leaving for a year to teach at a Charter. How hilarious is that? I’m lucky I have tenure.
