Many years ago, I served as dean in an East Harlem junior high school. I maintained a strict policy of the immediate removal of disruptive students from the classroom.
What is the solution to the very real problem presented to teachers when there are disruptive students who consistently deprive other students of educational opportunities?
For four decades, my kindergarten and 1st-grade students have gone each week to construction sites to observe and to meet workers and learn about their jobs.
Leon Botstein, the president of Bard College, has advocated an educational proposal that would radically transform the way we educate students and the economics of education: “All outstanding student loan debt should be forgiven.
The Community Learning Schools Initiative is making an incredible impact in the lives of my students and in my community every day.

National Teacher Day, which honors teachers and recognizes the contribution they have made, is celebrated on the Tuesday of the first full week of May in the United States.
I am still struggling in my fourth year and I graduated from a top-notch teacher training program.
Rhonda Rosenberg’s Research Shows column [“Einstein’s struggles motivate students,” April 7] has revealed what I have observed for many years now, teaching the same population and most of the time 7th- and 8th-grade students with disabilities.
Educators throughout the country in all disciplines must be alarmed at the dysfunction of our current political discourse where theatrics, contempt and anger have replaced reason and civility.
After reading the story “Collaborative model shows promise” [March 3], I wonder if the English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) teacher has a partnership with one teacher/one class for the whole year.
Congratulations on the March 3 issue featuring the voices of our members. A great idea!
An amazing teacher you are, Ms. Steinweiss.
I am a retired New York City teacher and feel I owe my comfortable and happy life to the UFT.
