I agree with your comment. Fenty/Rhee reform has not taken off the ground. There is too much emphasis on abridging the rights of workers and children. I am not surprised about the lack of wrap around services and professional development training either. The solutions are internal to our community of parents and teachers. It is a bottom up approach to educating children. WTU must be a leader as opposed to a follower trying to play as if it is leading. It is dishonest with its members and the general public in that regard. Lets keep fighting for critical analysis and action.

More smoke and mirrors as the major issues were avoided with limitations on teacher member input. I am amazed at how much misinformation is given to teachers. Alot of the information is plain incorrect. Many delegates say the representative meeting are a waste of their time after a long teaching day- just more promises which can not be believed. I suspect the union's ability to represent the membership will continue to be challenged because of the President's ineffectiveness. Clearly, Rhee does not pay him any attention, nor does other stakeholders. Once again teachers find themselves in a bad position as a result of the actions of one particular President. Truly disappointing. Teachers must be harder on demanding solutions to problems of a collective bargain agreement, job security, and representation as a whole.

In order to accomplish the education function examination of the extremes of wealth and poverty in Washington DC must take place. Race, poverty, and healthcare are as important factors as the classroom teacher as this article thoughtfully examines. Parental involvement can make the difference.
