On Wednesday, Oct. 21, 2015, Families for Excellent Schools held a rally in support of charter schools.
In response, UFT President Michael Mulgrew issued the following statement:
If history is a guide, one-third of the teachers at today’s rally will not be in their charter schools next year. I only hope that those teachers who leave their charter schools will maintain their commitment to the city’s children by joining our ranks. Anyone who hates endless test-prep and draconian disciplinary policies is welcome. You will find you can better serve all children and be taken more seriously as professionals.
