From this Educator:
“NYC teachers over age 50 are being harassed, intimidated and forced into retirement through cruel and unorthodox methods by NYC Principals and administrators. Teachers who have dedicated their lives to students and have unblemished records are being labeled “INEFFECTIVE” in an effort to have them leave before they are ready. Public sentiment and the media have never been too teacher friendly but all this has to stop here and now. Please, as an educator if you are feeling the pressure to retire or if you have retired under pressure, please join the forums at respectourseniorteachers.org. Complete anonymity exists there. If you are in of need immediate help or advice please email us at (ROST) For parents and educators who wish, in a sensible way to discuss principal effectiveness please visit nycprincipals.org This soon to be finished website will have a strongly moderated forum; it will be a place to shout out the good or bring attention to issues worth visiting.
