JOEL KLEIN’S ORDER TO PRINCIPALS TO TIE STUDENT TEST SCORES TO TENURE DECISIONS

Last week Chancellor Klein instructed principals to use student test scores for granting tenure to teachers.

This is another example of how the Mayor and Chancellor have declared war against the UFT. From the Mayor’s speech in Washington, DC last fall, attacking ATRs, against tenure, and tying teacher evaluation to student test scores to his recent threat to layoff 8,500 teachers all show his hostility to the union and union members. And now Joel Klein, once again, blatantly and arbitrarily violates all norms of  working in a collaborative manner with our union.

New Action has been calling for a campaign to get rid of Chancellor Klein–isn’t it time to move full speed ahead with those plans?

    Mayor Bloomberg and Chancellor Klein making war against the UFT??? What a shock! Yet President Mulgrew refuses to apologize for his nerveless and unprincipled failure to endorse Bill Thompson.

    As several UFT higher-ups explained before the election, backing Thompson would queer contract negotiations.

    And now we witness the thousand deaths of the UFT’s cowardice.
