Without sound restorative justice, and with zero-tolerance behavior policies, we should expect to see more and more outcomes like this. A proper restorative justice process would have unearthed whether there WAS bullying or whether there WAS a physical altercation. We have to find a better way to create peace and leave behind punishment.
The struggle is REAL.
Unity is strength!
The first-of-its-kind merger is good news for unionized teachers and very bad news for school privatization advocates.
The false guise of modern school choice appeals to the competitive nature fostered by capitalism and a thirst for obtaining the best; but, the dark and crippling implication is that of dismantling public ed while special interest get rich.
How about just a LIVING WAGE??
Personally, I think building rapport with students means understanding their life challenges. That means politics (not necessarily partisan) are involved.
What are your thoughts?
This is disturbing, but in what other ways are teachers' voices being actively suppressed in our public schools?
An American teacher was seemingly pushed to the ground and was arrested following comments she made at a school board meeting about the superintendent's pay rise.
Deyshia Hargrave will not have charges pressed against her and has since left the local jail.
Did you know that teachers in DPS are also blacklisted like this, also for similarly specious reasons? And often, when they are being interviewed in other districts, DPS HR interferes with their hiring.
Are we really considering what equity means?
And as we said throughout the campaign, "manufactured segregation."
