How Many Members Does Educators 4 Excellence Really Have? Not Many I Guess.
For E4E it's better to mislead the ever complaint news media with the fiction that they represent teachers and not their education reform masters. Therefore, it's not in E4E's best interest to participate in a democratic union election where they will be exposed as a "special interest group" on the fringe of union politics and represent only a very thin minority of "newbie teachers", most being the two year Teach For America wonders, who will be long gone from the classroom in five years.
cancerous tumor in the UFT body and it is time to surgically remove it by refusing to appear with E4E in any forum. These forums simply gives E4E credibility that they do not deserve. E4E had their chance to show their popularity with teachers by running in the election and failed the test. Let them fade into history as simply a tool for outside education reform groups.
