NYC Principals Union Issues No Confidence Vote over Mayor Bill de Blasio’s Handling of Schools Reopening

Breitbart:

The New York City principals union has issued a vote of no confidence over Mayor Bill de Blasio’s (D) handling of re-opening and demands he cede control of the schools to the state’s education department.

Amid the coronavirus pandemic, the city government has repeatedly altered its plans for getting students back to school.

The Wall Street Journal reported on the development:

In the past month, the mayor and Chancellor Richard Carranza have twice made last-minute decisions to delay the reopening of schools because of a teacher shortage.

On Friday the city made another 11th-hour switch, allowing teachers instructing remotely to work from home rather than their schools. The principals union said it wasn’t notified ahead of time about the change.

In its no-confidence resolution, the executive board of the principals union said the mayor and the chancellor “have entered into grossly irresponsible staffing agreements that fail to prioritize the needs of school children and their families.”

The state’s Department of Education has reported a teacher shortage of around 12,000 and while city officials said they have hired “a few thousand” teachers, the exact number remains unknown.

  1. Pass the popcorn. Fuhrer de Blasio isn’t liberal enough for these clowns?
    And, let’s be honest, this is a union. They are not in power for the students, they are not in power for the principals, they are in power for themselves. You make it into the executive of the union and you are set for life.
    I have a cousin who is a shop steward. I love him, but he does it because he can follow the rules and make a lot more money
