Michelle Obama and Why Teachers Need To Embrace Critique





US First Lady Michelle Obama
US First Lady Michelle Obama
Every time someone says something, anything, about teachers, without fail, a naysayer always nags how it’s a conspiracy against teachers as a whole. For instance, a recent commercial about the National Baseball Hall of Fame Museum started with a father asking his boy, “You like your teachers this year?” to which the boy replied, “Sure.” Some took that as a coordinated effort by Major League Baseball, Governor Andrew Cuomo, and all their plutocrat friends to diminish the teaching profession.
Really? Isn’t this rather typical banter between parents and their middle school children?
It gets worse when issues of race and class get involved. Take, for instance, this bit by First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama, in a commencement address at Dillard University:
So my mother volunteered at my school — helping out every day in the front office, making sure our teachers were doing their jobs, holding their feet to the fire if she thought they were falling short. I’d walk by the office and there she’d be. (Laughter.) I’d leave class to go to the bathroom, there she’d be again, roaming the halls, looking in the classrooms. And of course, as a kid, I have to say, that was a bit mortifying, having your mother at school all the time.
But looking back, I have no doubt that my classmates and I got a better education because she was looking over those teachers’ shoulders. (Applause.) You see, my mom was not a teacher or a principal or a school board member. But when it came to education, she had that hunger. So she believed that our education was very much her business.
Some folks were outraged by the comments, as if she meant that she would want hundreds of parents swarming the schools, checking to see if their kids were learning something instead of trusting the experts, experts now being the teachers. Actually, the speech reveals something deeper than that, an issue that I not only highlight in my book (see: “Negotiating My Own Skin” and “What Happened”), but that Mia McKenzie deftly does in today’s piece “The White Teachers I Wish I Never Had.” She writes:
The thing is, Ms. McMahon should have known better. She didn’t because white teachers then, and most now, aren’t required to have any analysis of systems of white supremacy or anti-Blackness, and their own complicity in both, before they enter classrooms to teach

The Future With the New UFT Contract.southbronxschool.com

The Future With the New UFT Contract

The Crack Team is down in the dumps. Sadly, the contract that the UFT negotiated for the teachers of New York was passed by a 3-1 margin. Instead of cursing the result The Crack Team decided to do something about it.

We thought that rather than once again writing about why this contract was not good yet again,  it would be better to show how actual teachers would be affected by it. It was decided that a contingent of The Crack Team would travel into the future to see just how this contract has either helped or hurt teachers. We did not have any plutonium for our Flux Capacitor so we decided on another method of time travel as seen in the Star Trek episode, "City on the Edge of Forever." Luckily for us, Steve of The Crack Team has been to a Star Trek convention had purchased the schematics for the Guardian of Forever for $10,000. We thought he was foolish, but imagine our surprise when we found out it worked. Don't believe we built one? Here's the finished product awaiting the two members of The Crack Team to enter.

At about 7:30 PM EDT Crack Team members Jim and Spock entered the Guardian for Forever and returned just a few minutes later at 7:34 PM EDT.

SUPPORT LEONIE HAIMSON CLASS SIZE MATTERS BY ATTENDING SKINNY AWARDS DINNER

Time out from contract vote reporting for a word for a worthy cause.

OK. It's time to ante up for Leonie and the great work she does in all our interests. And to support the awardees - the great Patrick Sullivan who  single-handedly fought the evil forces in all his years on the PEP. And to honor great principals everyone wishes they could work for - Carol Burris and Liz Phillips.

If you are going stop by and say hello - I'll be sitting with Change the Stakers and any MOREistas who show.

Six days from now, on Monday, June 9 we will be holding our annual “Skinnyaward dinner, to honor three extraordinary individuals who have given us the real “skinny” about our public schools. 


Our honorees this year are Liz Phillips, principal of PS 321 in Brooklyn, Carol Burris, principal of South Side HS on Long Island, and Patrick Sullivan, former Manhattan representative to the Panel for Education Policy.

Liz and Carol are leaders in one of the most exciting developments of this or any year  --principals who are speaking out against the high-stakes and low quality of the NY State exams.

Patri
ck stood up for NYC parents and consistently challenged the DOE to justify their damaging policies during the Bloomberg years.   Diane Ravitch will be there as well, our Superwoman, fighting to protect and strengthen public education and against the forces of corporate reform.  



Please buy your tickets now, to reserve your seat for a four course dinner with wine at Bocca Di Bacco at 191 7th Ave (at 21st St).


If you cannot attend, please donate to our organization if you would like to support our work on student privacy, parent rights, and class size, or simply to honor these three heroes who have courageously spoken out,  when others remained silent.

Our annual dinner is always one of the most enjoyable evenings of the year, and one that you will not want to miss. And this year,  with the demise of inBloom, we have something special to celebrate.

Thanks,

Report: Time to End Harmful, Exclusionary School Discipline Policies

By Mary Ellen Flannery
It’s beyond time to dismantle the school-to-prison pipeline, concludes an authoritative report released this week by the Council of State Governments (CSG) Justice Center, in collaboration with NEA and hundreds of other student advocacy groups, professional organizations, and practitioners.
Millions of students are removed from their classrooms every year, and overwhelmingly for minor disciplinary infractions.  Those students are far more likely to fall behind, drop out, and eventually land in the juvenile justice system—and they’re also disproportionately students of color, students with disabilities, or students who identify as LGBT.
These harmful, exclusionary practices must end, according to “The School Discipline Consensus Report,”released Tuesday by the CSG Justice Center, which offers a roadmap of recommendations to reduce student suspensions, expulsions, and arrests, and provide “conditions for learning wherein all students feel safe, welcome, and supported.”
“We applaud the CSG Justice Center for its leadership in tackling the school discipline and school-to-prison problems,” said NEA President Dennis Van Roekel. “If coupled with the tools and resources educators need to get the job done, many of these recommendations can move us towards improving graduation rates, closing the achievement gaps, and keeping kids out of the juvenile justice system.”
The data shows clearly that change is needed: Black, Hispanic, and American Indian students are suspended at sometimes double the rate of their White peers; 20 percent of students with disabilities were suspended in a single school year, compared to 10 percent of students without disabilities; and LGBT students are three times more likely to be harshly disciplined than their heterosexual peers, according to the report.
To create a welcoming and secure learning environment for all students, the report offers more than 50 Report: Time to End Harmful, Exclusionary School Discipline Policies | NEA Today:
