The Harm The UFT Moratorium Resolution Does

A comment on this post:

The resolution is worse than useless, since it gives the false impression, intended to pacify the membership, that the union leadership is protecting our interests in this matter, rather than co-managing the implementation of the Common Corporate Standards and Danielson checklists along with the so-called reformers. -- Michael Fiorillo

As usual, Michael gets it exactly right.

They're trying to make it look like they're doing something when they're really not doing anything at all except letting the Common Core/Danielson/ADVANCE juggernaut run over teachers, destroy careers, wreck reputations and ruin the education of children.


  1. Amen. Absolutely correct, RBE and Michael.

    They're fearing the next chapter leader elections.
    I mean, how can they defend themselves at Unityites when they all they can offer are these distracting, mollifying but actually quite weak moves.

    1. I think they are hearing the complaints, but this is a lame attempt to address them while really doing nothing. They know this moratorium will never happen, but they'll use this to say they're doing something. In the past, this jive would fool people, but not now. They're living under Danielson and ADVANCE. They know how bad it is and how phony the resolution is too.
