“A couple of months ago, the mayor of New York City snuck out a press release about his failure to rid the city of some its poorest performing teachers.
What his administration has done instead is allow some of these teachers, many of whom have been out of the classroom for years collecting full salaries, to seep back into schools and teach our city’s most vulnerable children.
A devastating reality of this city’s broken public school system is the fact that our most vulnerable children too often are taught by the least effective teachers. With 75 percent of New York City’s 1.1 million public school students being children of color, you would think that Mayor Bill de Blasio would ensure high-performing teachers reach the halls of every school.”
