Withy the recent dire economic news from both the city and Albany, it appears again that education is one of the main areas that will take a fiscal hit. Laying off any teachers will prove to a very negative consequence, and certainly severely impact how well thousands of students will be taught.
Teachers work under extremely difficult conditions, ranging from overcrowded classes to lack of administrative support and classroom supplies. There is absolutely no logical reason to even consider laying off teachers; there must be an alternative way to approach.
The governor and the mayor need to work in tandem with the UFT to see to it that teachers are not laid off. Our profession is one that should be treated with a lot more professionalism and respect; we do our
very best to give our students the very best education and to help them to realize their full potential.
Do not mess around with education in this city,state,or nation!
