UFT/AFT Long Time Support for Shutting Down Schools

    Former UFT and AFT President Sandra Feldman: “If a public school is not doing the job it is supposed to do, I think it ought to be closed down and redesigned.” 

    What does that mean - supposed to do?  Shanker said much the same thing from the early 80's on - the true beginning of the sell-out to ed deform.

    *  “I don’t think having money out as a carrot is going to work.” — Feldman on merit pay.
     Don't think for a minute Feldman or Shanker would have opposed the various merit pay schemes floated through MulGarten.

    Then head on over to Norms Notes and re-read the Newsweek Gate-Weingarten piece and tell me which side the UFT/AFT is on.  Bill Gates and Randi Weingarten

    Afterburn: Mike's EIA archive also had this tidbit.
    *  Linda Darling-Hammond of the National Commission on Teaching & America’s Future:
    Her stance on alternative forms of teacher certification caused some controversy among the crowd. Terming these programs “education lite,” Darling-Hammond claimed they “keep salaries low and use teacher education as the cash cows to fund the law school and the engineering school.” Her view angered many proponents of alternative certification, particularly those who were holding a workshop at the conference to introduce their programs to the participants.

    Happy New Year, ya'll.
