Get Schooled: Go to college now. Pay tuition later. Oregon explores paying it forward 


Pay it forward
Pay it forward
Under a “pay it forward” concept, Oregon is considering a plan that would spare public college students any tuition bills while in school. Instead, students would start paying back the state once they began working and earning paychecks.
 The “pay it forward” concept will be fleshed out by the Oregon Higher Education Coordination Commission, which has two years to figure out the details, including how to initially fund the $9 billion startup cost.
In hearings, proponents said students with an undergraduate degree would on average have to turn over

UFT Threatens To Use Its Own Campaign Funds To Destroy Spitzer



The Times has an article out tonight saying business leaders and labor are joining together to put a stake through Spitzer's run for city comptroller:

Business leaders leapt into the ruckus, finding common cause with organized labor as they described Mr. Spitzer as ill-suited to the job of managing the city’s multibillion-dollar pension system and policing city spending. 

Such a post, said Kathryn S. Wylde, the head of the New York City Partnership, made up mainly of real estate, Wall Street and insurance firms, requires intense collaboration and diplomacy with the mayor’s office, the business community and municipal labor unions. 

“The tone of the Spitzer announcement and history suggest that’s not the way he would approach the job,” she said in an interview. 

...

It appeared that the muscle for the anti-Spitzer operation might emerge from the city’s labor unions, which view Mr.

CAUGHT ON AUDIO, AGAIN!!!! DR Alison Coviello: "YOU'LL GET NOTHING AND LIKE IT!!!"

Hey, remember that scene in Caddyshack when Judge Smails nephew Spalding wanted a hamburger, no a cheeseburger?

Well, the same thing kind of happened to me at PS 154 in the Bronx. Except we can substitute Judge
Smails with DR Alison Coviello. And instead of Spalding wanting a hamburger, no a cheeseburger, a hot dog and a milk shake, all I wanted was a demo lesson. Yes, I was told in essence that I will get nothing and like it.

As readers of the blog know I had requested a demo lesson of our AP Rajendra Jimenez-Jailall on January 31, 2013;
I requested a demo lesson from AP Rajendra Jimenez-Jailall (as I have you in the past) and he assured me that he will give me that demo lesson and that it will be a lesson in which literacy will be used to start off the lesson, differentiation will be used and I will learn so much.
As of a meeting with DR Alison Coviello on March 1, 2013 and with my 2nd formal observation imminent, I had yet to receive that exalted, grandiose, all encomposing  demo lesson promised to me by AP Rajendra Jimenez-Jailall.

My curiosity piqued by the lack of the demo lesson I inquired politely to  DR Alison Coviello as to the
