Open Letter To David Cantor

But please don't call what I wrote despicable. It might have been in poor taste, tacky, even icky, but not despicable. There is enough despicability going on at the DOE. Such as:

What happened with David Pakter is despicable.

What happened with Ted Smith is despicable.

What is happening with Dan Smith is despicable.

What is happening with Francis Blake is despicable.

Allowing "DR" Mychael Willon to be employed by the DOE is despicable.

What happened to Nicole Suriel and how it was handled is despicable.

Numb Nuts is despicable.

Seeing a 25 year teacher sent to the Rubber Room for getting a U on an observation by a 27 year old first time in education Leadership Academy principal is despicable.

A teacher sent to the Rubber Room for carrying a Coca Cola in her hand is despicable.

The Rubber Room is despicable.

The lack of learning because everything now is preparing for the tests is despicable.

The shutting out of parental involvement is despicable.
The "gotcha squad" is despicable.

The assault on the teaching profession is despicable.

The fallacy of "Children First" is despicable.

I could go on and on and on. But it is late, and I am a tad bit tired. I hope this opens a line of communication up. Please feel free to email me at anytime. Thank you David for taking the time to read this.

I think that you had worked for Joel Klein all those years and gave out press releases that supported his lies is despicable

SBS- You are a mensch. As per our conversation today - you put a lot of meat on the table. It's fun to have fun but we are now engaged in a serious war of resistance. Don't stop but be judicious - or jewdicious. Your power of analysis and reporting on the major issues are needed more than ever.
