They've won the turnaround battle with the mayor.
Now they have to defend these schools next year, as the DOE will take special aim at them in order to close them before Bloomberg leaves office.
And they have to do this without selling the rest of us out in the evaluation system fight.
Good luck with that.
I have no illusions that there won't be some sell-out on the evaluations and I've already seen how the UFT can win lawsuits over school closures, then sit on their hands while the DOE starves those schools the next year and closes them anyway.
But as always, hoping to be proven wrong by the happy conventioneers at the UFT.
So far, however, I've learned you'll never go broke expecting the UFT leadership to sell you down the river and call it a victory.
Or, as Edwize poet "Redhog" once put it about the infamous '05 sell-out contract "This scrapes the skies!"
