NYC OWED $1.9 BILLION FROM STATE

The Campaign for Fiscal Equity lawsuit was settled about ten years ago but the state used the Great Recession as an excuse not to pay the city the money it is owed for schools. The recession is in the rear-view mirror but the state still hasn't paid up in full.

It is now referred to as Foundation Aid.

To find out how much your school is owed, click here.

Not that if the DOE got all the money, it would end up in the classroom.

At Middle College the money would be spent in the classroom for sure. According to the CFE site, MCHS is owed $917,147.

Who cares? What is that money gonna do? They country spends a trillion dollars a year on poverty. Anything change in the last 30 years? Get the kids more ipads and laptops they can use when they arent supposed to, watch fights on youtube or look at sneakers? Maybe put 7 principals in 1 building instead of 6?

So true.

I sure as well hope it will be spent on Professional Development that won't count at all towards our hours. That would be a boon!

Hey James open market still has two social studies openings. It it true? If not could you talk to someone to remove them. Don't want to see some poor atr from Long Island being forced placed. Thanks

Those fake positions are up all the time. This very year i was placed 3 times at posted positions that didnt exist.

James Eterno said...

Ok thanks

I got placed as an ATR at Middle College in LIC. Despite the commute from Eastern Queens, it was the best thing that could've happened to me in 2014. A social studies teacher was just about to go on child care leave. I have not looked back since for the most part.

Eastern queens is not eastern Nassau or Suffolk county

James,,,,were you appointed at Middle College? Hope so.

Highly Effective King Clovis said...

I've been placed at quite a few places that had fake openings. One of them had 5 other Social Studies ATR's. Thank the gods that was only about a week though! Literally had nothing for us to do the whole time.

That being said, most of my placements have been great and I'm kind of hoping for the same thing James got. It's really the only way out.

We have teachers who come from Suffolk County at MCHS. It is a professional work environment.

I know I've been rotated into that school and all the schools in the area. Was pointing out the open market social studies positions that may be old or fake. Don't want to see an atr being forced placed into Any position especially a fake or old one

James Eterno said...

I haven't heard any ATR who was sent to MCHS complain about the school. Travel and parking might be tough but school is excellent on many levels.

Thursday 7:12 pm, Yes I was appointed in January. I'm officially no longer an ATR or provisional teacher. Thanks for support.
