The RTRs (Teaching Fellows who never had a job and are threatened with firing December 5) are not helped, not harmed, and still in desperate shape.
ATRs really are helped here, and seemingly without cost (although I never trust the DoE; they could try to pull something sneaky. You should never trust the DoE.
