NYC Teachers’ parking placards expire today

October 21, 2008 pm31 3:31 pm

The old ones were good through October 20. For most of us, there are no new ones. I wonder how closely the traffic agents will be looking. Be careful of tickets.

This should have come up at last Wednesday’s Delegate Assembly, but the president’s report ran very long. The agenda should include time for her report, some generous amount, maybe a full hour? Many delegates come to hear the report – but it should not interfere with the Assembly’s ability to conduct business.

Still haven’t gotten an answer about what harm there was in having more permits than spaces, for those of us who occasionally needed them. But I’m not holding my breath.

    Sorry I’m being off-topic, but I just accidentally found a really depressing set of school expenditure data. It seems as if in Westchester County many cities spend $24k per student or so and think nothing of it. And then people wonder why teachers would rather work in Scarsdale than in New York.

    there have been approximately 11 thousand comfirmed spaces. 11 thousand approximate passes have been distributed to invidivual school principals to disperse as they see fit. what the city doesn’t realize is that there are day school, night school, weekend school, summer school teachers, and those 11 thousand spaces are used by more than 11 thousand teachers per day. rediculous!

    Hopefully the traffic agents cut these teachers some slack and understand these points that there just aren’t enough spaces and permits. Either way I agree that there should be no issue with giving out more permits per parking space and it should be understood that some of these teachers are night shifts and summer shifts.
