Recent article about the New York City "Rubber Rooms"



Rubber rooms are where New York teachers are literally warehoused and paid when they are taken out of the classroom, but have not actually been lawfully terminated. Those who run the school system would prefer that they quit, at this point, but many tolerate the rubber rooms for the sake of continuing to get their salaries and benefits, even though they are not allowed to teach.

Here is the aricle.

There is a reference in the article to an attempt by the Obama administration to improve education (in a way which I think is a step in the right direction).

If I were posting to initiate a discussion about the politics, I would have put it there.

I posted about the problem of dealing with teachers whose union drags out any action against them, which is not political, and the post properly belongs in Discussion.:)

I mentioned the reference to Obama to pre-empt anyone who would mistakenly think it was a political topic, simply because the link also mentioned Obama. It is not as if I can chose to link to only the part of the page which does not mention him.
