UNITED FOR CHANGE HS VP CANDIDATE AND NEWLY ELECTED EXEC BD REPS ON WBAI TODAY AT 1

If you are anywhere near a radio, smart phone, or computer today at 1:00 PM, please tune in or log on to WBAI for Talk out of School. Middle school teacher Daniel Alicea will be hosting. It should be compelling radio. 

Update: You can listen to the archive version here.



Our seven winning High School Executive Board candidates will be on. Daniel will also feature our Academic High School VP candidate Jonathan Halabi, who got the most high school teacher votes, but didn't win because Unity tilts the playing field in their favor for the election.

Norm Scott goes into some detail on our Magnificent 7 Executive Board reps who will be taking office soon.

I predicted a 79% win for Unity, so I was way off. Congratulations to UFC for running a strong campaign and good luck to the 7 Exec Board members. I'm not sure any of the conclusions drawn are valid, though. Jonathon on his site blithely states that Mulgrew is the most hated UFT president ever. But where does he get that data? Since the vast majority of UFT members don't vote, what conclusion should we draw about them? I think a valid conclusion is that they are satisfied and would vote if they were not. Just as more unhappy customers comment on Yelp than happy ones, thus skewing the overall picture, I think the election drew upon the dissatisfied. So, the conclusion that one-third of the UFT membership is unhappy with Mulgrew is not supportable. The vast majority of retirees too, did not vote. The ones that did are the ones most unhappy. In the absence of any polling, conclusions are very hard to support. But, the opposition picked up a lot of points over previous elections and deserves credit. That is a valid statement.

1/3 voted for the other guy but the membership is satisfied with Mulgrew? Those that didn’t vote believe the elections are fixed and their vote is irrelevant.

12:19... do you have one scintilla of evidence to support your statement? No you don't.
