The DOE Causes The ATR Crises,Then Has Their Flunkies Blame The Teacher.


The newspapers are full of how it will cost up to 74 million dollars to pay teachers, who no fault of their own, have been excessed and are used as substitute teachers in schools for the 2008-2009 school year. The Daily News, The New York Times, and The Sun all have articles that report that the New Teacher Project , a wholly owned subsidiary of the Department of Education, has questioned the waste of money by allowing the ATR crises to get worse. However, instead of doing the obvious by freezing new hires until the ATR crises subsides, Mr. Timothy Daily, President of the company demanded that the ATR's be given a time limit, similar to Chicago (12 months) while encouraging the DOE to continue to hire new teachers.

Not surprisingly, Tweed was quite happy to agree that there should be a time limit of no more than 12 months before ATR's are taken off the payroll. However, for the DOE, the ATR time limit to get a classroom position requires the union to renegotiate the tenure provisions of the contract and amend State Civil Service Law, not even Ms. Sellout, Randi Weingarten, is going to do that. In fact, the ATR time limit is non-negotiable and no union leader will negotiate teacher tenure away. Not now, not ever! Therefore, to stop and eliminate the ATR crises, the following procedures need to be implemented.

  1. Freeze new hires until all excessed teachers are placed in their subject area.
  2. Eliminate the "fair student funding" formula that penalizes principals who pick up higher-paid teachers.
  3. Bring back the "seniority transfer system" that allows veteran teachers to have first choice of vacant positions.
Finally, it is time for our union to start their own media offensive and place the blame for the ATR crises squarely on the DOE and their "children last" program.

Where is the union on the ""air funding formula"? Where is the age discrimination case? Where is the union when it comes to Bloomberg's speculating about a third term?

I meant "fair funding".

And I agree with your comments.

PO'd teacher's son said it best- the Union LOVES ATRs and all these new hires- just look at all the extra dues they are collecting to fatten their coffers.

I heard today that the situation is starting to trickle down to paraprofessionals that have too many years in the system.

Is it me, or does the system seem to be getting worse by the day?

anon: The union position on fsf is to keep their head in the sand and let the ATR crises worsen.

Justice:

Never on the STS and fsf but may eventually relent on the ATR's.

17: It is getting worse. The principals have complete control without consequences. The ATR's crises is getting worse and the rubber rooms are overcrowded with unjustly accused teachers.

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of troubles when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in large starting capital.
Nowadays, I feel good, I started take up real money.
It gets down to choose a correct partner who uses your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, parts and divides the income with me.
