Diversity in New York City Schools

(from the New Action leaflet distributed at the December 2012 UFT Delegate Assembly).
For a printable version click: Leaflet 2012 December

New Action/UFT strongly urges Chapter Leaders and delegates to support today’s [substitute] resolution calling for support to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund /Puerto Rican Legal Defense Fund civil rights complaint regarding specialized high school admissions, and further calling for a UFT committee to consider alternatives.

Almost two years ago this body passed a resolution resolving that “the UFT demand that the New York City Department of Education rededicate itself to a policy of actively recruiting and hiring teachers of diverse backgrounds in order to reverse the downward trend of the last eight years in the percentages of African-American and Latino classroom teachers and to diminish the considerable gap between the numbers of African-American and Latino students and the numbers of teachers of color.” It is time to push again for diversity, on all fronts.
