The Official Blog of the Independent Community of Educators, a caucus of the United Federation of Teachers
From Twitter earlier:
A person with common sense...why isn't he the major or schools chancellor?
Remember di blockhead ego is in nyc schools opening when other city systems were remote.he won't cave in.what a putz...
The Putzman rings twice...
Never going to happen. DeBlasio is hell bent on in person. He agreed to it last time kicking and screaming, no way he'll turn around on this now that it's set that we all return. The ONLY way I can see it happening is if the parents revolt and insist on remote, and what I don't see that happening either, and besides he'll be leaving so what does he care?
Commenters on this blog often don't see the big picture. How long will our profession last if remote starts to become the norm? It is in our best interest to get everybody back to work in person
Cuomo and De Blasio are both heavily bought by real estate donors. They want the buildings to be used. Otherwise the demand for real estate space will go down. That is also why theyare against hiking property taxes.
Diblundered should care about a legacy.only very vocal parents or influential critics or maybe the cdc will cause him to reconsider
Who the HELL would want to teach remotely again? Awful.
@12:36 someone who is not really interested in teaching.
"Cuomo and De Blasio are both heavily bought by real estate donors. They want the buildings to be used. Otherwise the demand for real estate space will go down.

We teachers did nothing when our union brothers and sisters suffered when manufacturing shut down and communities lost everything. We did nothing when customer service jobs were outsourced to foreign countries. We happily bought cheap Chinese toys for our children at Walmart even though they contained lead paint. Remote teaching will be outsourced too. That’s our future if teachers keep pushing for remote. Hell it may be our future regardless. America First candidates are hard to find.
@10:01 this comment reminded me of a long-lost chapter leader friend of mine, not in teaching. Management would push him to remind his members to direct the workers to encourage people who called to go online for their service requests. Of course that would have been so easy for the workers if their phones rang a lot less but he saw right through it and knew that it would only lead to less workers needed, and that's exactly what's happened over time. Maybe some things are inevitable, but why should we rush it along. Outsourcing is a very real possibility. A friend of mine homeschools and the teacher is in another country.
