Edwize takes shot at Moskowitz, WSJ. More, please!

August 12, 2009 am31 12:16 am

Teachers unions often get clobbered in the press, and by anti-union politicians.

Because they don’t like us. They don’t like teachers having contracts. They don’t like pay scales that they have to follow. They don’t like employees with rights. Lot’s of them don’t like public schools.

But they lie. They pretend that they are just concerned with the kids.

On Edwize, Leo Casey (UFT VP for HS) rips into them. He rips into Moskowitz for complaining about having to pay union wage to paraprofessionals ($21k in NYC, with our cost of living? below the poverty line). He hits the WSJ for misreporting about a KIPP school in Baltimore. Did teachers demand extra pay? Nope, they negotiated for it, and KIPP broke its word.

Go read the whole thing on Edwize. And encourage them to keep hitting back.
