School Budgets – Return to Unit Costing

(from the New Action leaflet distributed at the March 2015 UFT Delegate Assembly).
For a printable version click: May 2015 Leaflet

Before Joel Klein, schools budgeted for a certain number of teachers (units).

The DoE under Bloomberg/Klein deducted actual teacher salaries would be deducted from school budgets, encouraging principals to actively discriminate against teachers with more experience.

This system is insane. It does not save the DoE one dime, and it discourages schools who need experienced educators from hiring them.

New Action introduced the unit costing resolution on tonight’s agenda. Please support it.
