Here is a link to Arthur Goldstein's May Delegate Assembly report.
Some interesting tidbits:
Mayoral Control from President Mulgrew's Report
NY Assembly passed a 3-year mayoral control bill, no changes. Waiting on Senate, UFT does not support current version of mayoral control. Refers to NY Post editorial saying mayoral control ought not to mean total control, and says it contradicts what they said when Bloomberg was in power: Says NY Post are hypocrites, say what they say at any given moment. Says someone can tweet that out.
Since when did the UFT oppose mayoral control? It's news to me that we don't support the 2009 law.
Will the UFT have the guts to ask the Assembly in June to let the current law expire and go back to the pre-2002 school governance system?
From the question period:
CL-Observations-deadline is coming up, but not everyone has been observed enough. How will it impact members?
Part of the Mulgrew answer:
SED will take a rating as long as there are two observations. But if admin doesn't do job, no harm should come to our members.
This is good to know.
Congratulations to Arthur for working to get the ESL resolution through.
