The daylong protest, organized by the California Teachers Association, drew about 1,000 protesters for various activities. About 150 moved into the rotunda in late afternoon, and some of them refused to leave at closing time.

The crowd chanted "shame on you" as protesters were led off one by one to an elevator. The CHP used plastic wrist ties to bind the protesters

Mike Parker, a community college teacher who expected to be arrested, said the protest is to provide a "moral witness...What's happening in this society is totally out of kilter," he said.

Superintendent threatens principal for offering teacher tenure

Absurd? Ridiculous? Yes. But true.

The story that follows is from a NYC teacher, third year, in a middle school in a NYC district. Her name and school are not available yet, but will be, soon.
