I am ashamed of being a teacher because I made a child cry today for trying his best and doing absolutely nothing wrong — all in the name of “teacher effectiveness.”
Isn’t it disgusting how the DOE is never wrong (in its eyes)?
Yes, homelessness affects our classrooms. Always.
Just a quick note to acknowledge our appreciation to the UFT for sharing our school’s story.

Thank you to the teachers who shared the proof of DOE improper practices that make grievances possible.
Isn’t it amazing how they made the curriculum harder and then increased class size?
My school had to excess four teachers last year because we were “underenrolled.” I went from 28-30 kids per class to 30-34 kids per class in a middle school.
It’s obvious what the DOE is trying to do with Benjamin Cardozo HS.
Students with the most challenging students should have the most support.
I still don’t have Unit 1 for Ready Gen but I really don’t care since more than three-quarters of my class won’t be able to read the book when it comes.
Could you imagine what the city would say if the UFT closed the schools for a day to march in protest against what is occurring in schools throughout the city with regard to class size and other problems?
The Post's disdain for all public employees, especially teachers, really shines through.
I would love for the union to take the lead in supporting real growth in educational expectations, but headlines like “City grad rates drop for first time in a decade” [June 27] make me question our sincerity.
Operating with its customary disregard for planning, the Department of Education attempted to implement a brand-new program of computerized scoring of the social studies Regents exams without any apparent forethought.
Younger teachers need to be more alert to what their financial positions will be in the next 10, 20 and 30 years.
