VIDEO AT WASHINGTON IRVING CLOSING HEARING OTHERWISE KNOWN AS GROUNDHOG DAY

It is appropriate that the videos from the school closing Joint Public Hearing for Washington Irving were sent to me on Ground Hog Day.  In the movie with that title, Bill Murray has to live the same day over and over again.

School closing hearings are eerily similar with teachers, students, parents and union officials making great cases on behalf of their schools and DOE officials ignoring them.

FREE LUNCH

retired UFT MEMBERS: come and get it.
If tomorrow is anything like the 2007 Giants parade, UFT Chief "Financial" Officer Dave Hickey, going on three years without a contract.................. will spend thousands of dollars to place endless mounds of food and drink on every floor at 52 Broadway while he and his pal Ellie Engler reserve front row seats. In 2007, Hickey and other top UFT officials actually climbed on to a scaffolding (Insurance anyone?) to get a closer view of their "heroes."
There will be a V.I.P. lounge for labor leaders, politicians and invited guests of Mulgrew- who is demanding three zeroes from Bloomberg before he signs a contract.
Productivity- Hickey's main bailiwick- will be greatly reduced as everyone -except the members in the school- joins the fun...........while singing "Solidarity Forever."
So, if you are retired and in the area, stop by and ask for your free lunch that you have already paid for.
