I have such a nice Sunday morning routine during the school year. After I drop my son off at Hebrew school, I pick up the Daily News, got to McDonald's and get the #1 (Egg McMuffin, hash browns and a cup of black coffee), park the car, turn on WFAN and listen to Mike Francessa prognosticate about that Sunday's NFL games. I am in heaven. Except for this morning.
I saw yet another middling piece of propaganda thrust upon the public by those two little elitists at Educators4Excellence, Little Evan Stone and Princess Sydney Morris. How appropriate I thought to myself, after spitting the coffee over my windshield, that the day my son started Hebrew school for the year where he can learn the values of being a Jew, two Jews appear in the Daily News abrogating every value known to Jews. Little Evan and Princess Sydney continue to perpetuate every known stereotype that Jews are associated with.
Little Evan and Princess Sydney blabbered; Across New York City, 76,000 public school teachers are doing their part to get the school year off to a successful start. Whether they're staying late to craft their lesson plans, phoning parents to introduce themselves or buying classroom supplies, teachers are firmly committed to doing what it takes to help their students make progress.
Thank you for acknowledging that all teachers are hard at work. However, can you be a little less condescending?
They do all this despite the fact that for the past two years, they've worked without a contract.
