Update: This protest has been called off since, according to Michael Mulgrew, UFT got everything we asked for in meeting with this superintendent and the chancellor.
So here it is; on June 15th we are organizing a demonstration outside of the office of Hs Supt. Karen Watts. We plan on starting at 3:30. The address is 1396 Broadway, Brooklyn. The nearest train is the J train stop of Gates Avenue.
The background is this: Supt. Watts has a long history of supervising and empowering bad principals without providing any check on their malfeasance. We are calling attention to the Boards failure to reign in bad principals. I need your assistance in organizing and turning out your members. This is urgent. If we can successfully mobilize and call attention to our issues this will give us the leverage we need to push back against bad principals all over the city. This is a local protest with citywide implications. I am calling upon you as leaders of your staff. Please join me.
I hope demonstrations like this are being organized and promoted throughout many districts by the UFT as a start to a fight back campaign.
