FALLON: WHY ARE TEACHERS BEING LAID OFF WHILE MORE ARE BEING HIRED WITH BIG BONUSES?

image

This is a note from the Houston Federation of Teachers Union President Gayle Fallon:

We have received a number of calls from teachers who are being laid off allegedly due to “program change” at their HISD campus who noticed that HISD is recruiting new teachers in the same areas they are being told are being eliminated.

(Fallon says the new hires are being offered bonuses as much as $8,000.)

The HISD web site shows over 600 vacancies.

One of our members forwarded this to us and she reflects the feelings we are hearing in meetings and in direct conversations with teachers.

The HFTY is looking at legal action over age discrimination and possibly racial discrimination if the final demographics on age and race continue along the same trend we are currently seeing.

Gayle Fallon HFT

HISD Response:

The sign-on bonus is not for all special ed teachers, only those in particular hard-to-staff positions. RIF’ed teachers do not qualify for the signing bonus.

    Police responded to a shooting at Price Middle School in Atlanta early Thursday afternoon, WSBTV reports.

    Authorities say that multiple people, including a 14-year-old boy, were wounded, according to Fox News.

    Police said the teen — now identified by family members as 8th grader Telvis Douglas — was shot in the back of the neck and immediately transported to Grady Memorial Hospital for treatment, 11Alive reports. Douglas was reportedly awake and responsive while being transported to the hospital, and the injuries are non-life threatening.

    Atlanta Police spokesperson Carlos Campos said that the attack was not random.

    The second victim — a teacher — received medical attention for minor cuts and bruises. The teacher may have been trampled during the chaotic scene, WXIA reports.

    One person is in custody, according to CBS Atlanta. Campos told WXIA that the suspect was tentatively identified as a student. The shooting reportedly occurred outside the building.

    The school was placed on lockdown, along with an elementary school and high school in the area. Parents were initially asked not to come to the school to avoid additional confusion, but students are being evacuated by bus to a nearby church where they will be reunited with their parents.

    CHARTER SCHOOLS WORK WELL FOR RiCH WHiTE->

    SCHOOL BOARD MEMBERS!

    Are Charter School Really Working?

    “READ ALL ABOUT IT”

    Charter Schools are working very well for GREEDY WHITE SCHOOL BOARD MEMBERS and CORRUPT TOP LEVEL SCHOOL OFFICIALS”!

    Charter School Operators are becoming MILLIONAIRES at our Children’s Expense.

    Let me explain to you how:

    CASE IN POINT: All Non-Profit Charter Schools have a “COKE and SNACK fund”. The “COKE and SNACK FUND” is actually worth Millions of Dollars annually!

    FACT: Profits from “COKE and SNACK FUND” in Public Schools legally must be retained within the school for School and Classroom Improvements.

    FACT: Charter School Operators have historically put the PROFIT from the “COKE and SNACK->FUN” in their left hip pocket.

    QUESTION: How would you like to open a Restaurant and KNOW for a FACT over 1000 paying Customers were going to enter your Restaurant each and every day!

    QUESTION: Can you imagine the possibilities for making Big Money-Busing, School Maintainance, Heating and Cooling Buildings, Cleaning Services, Chemical, etc. The possibilities for making “BIG MONEY” are endless and that is why all these Rich White People are spending Hundreds of Thousands of Dollars to get on School Boards that pay approximately $800.00 per month.

    On a “MUCH” sadder note, very few Charter Schools are actually accomplishing their ACADEMIC GOALS and OBJECTIVES! Charter Schools in the U.S. have a long history of hiring Uncertified Instructors and Inexperienced School Administrators.

    PROOF: CHARTER SCHOOLS SUCK~

    Girl’s High School Basketball Coach Shoots Attackers in Parking Lot

    Officials say a girl’s basketball coach from Martin Luther King, Jr. Senior High School in Detroit shot two teens who attacked him as he was walking two basketball players to their cars in the school parking lot.

    According to police, the 70 year old basketball coach was walking the girls to their car when he was approached by the attackers. When one of the attackers grabbed the coach by his necklace, he pulled out his gun and shot them both.

    One of the alleged attackers was found dead on the street, while another was taken to the hospital. Both of the attackers had attended the high school, and one had been expelled from the school.

    Police say that the coach had a concealed weapons permit and is cooperating with police.

    The Detroit Public Schools issued this statement to 7 Action News:

    At approximately 7:30pm DPS Police responded to a call of attempted robbery at Martin Luther King Jr. High School. DPS Police are cooperating with DPD which is handling the lead investigation.

    We are very relieved that all students and DPS personnel and representatives involved are safe and were unharmed. Preliminary reports are that shots were fired during an attempted robbery of a member of the coaching team of the school’s girls basketball program by two assailants outside the school. There was one fatality and one injured suspect in serious condition.

    The school has many security features which were in place at the time of the incident as well as a full security plan as do all DPS schools. These will be reviewed as the regularly are after any incidents. There will be counselors available at the school Monday morning for students and faculty members.

    The Detroit police have expressed several times that they are understaffed and unable to meet the needs of the city.

    “The NAACP & SPLC is Full of CRAP!”

    The State of Mississippi Public Education System is Full of “YOUNG BLACK THUGS” and “LITTLE TUPACERS” who refuse to follow the and SCHOOL RULES! Sadly, they are backed up by the NAACP, Jessie Jackosn, Al Sharpton and the SOUTHERN POVERTY LAW CENTER”!

    Schools “MUST” implement Discipline if they are going to “SHUT DOWN” the “Public School to Prison Pipeline”!

    FACT: By discouraging Discipline in Publicly Funded Schools across America the NAACP and the SPLC have facilitated the Public School to Prison Pipeline!

    ‘Extreme Discipline’ Targets Minority US School Kids: Report

    2013/01/17 — Jackson, MS

    Civil rights groups in the United States released a report Thursday claiming that harsh punishments at schools across Mississippi have led to a disproportionate number of minority students being suspended, expelled, and jailed for minor infractions.

    “The needless criminalization of Mississippi’s most valuable asset – its children – must be dealt with immediately by school leaders and the communities they serve,” said Nancy Kohsin Kintigh, the American Civil Liberties Union’s (ACLU) Program Director for Mississippi, in a statement.

    “Zero-tolerance policies were originally designed to protect students from individuals who pose a threat on school grounds. Instead, they are being used to send children home for trivial things that should be solved in the principal’s office,” she said.

    “Handcuffs on Success: The Extreme School Discipline Crisis in Mississippi Public Schools,” the report released by the ACLU, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and other groups, finds children have been harshly punished for violating school dress codes and other similar behaviors.

    It also claims black students are affected by harsh discipline procedures at a much greater rate than white students, and cites a study of more than a hundred Mississippi school districts that finds for every one white student who is given an out-of-school suspension, three black students are suspended, even though black students comprise just half of the student population.

    The report follows a lawsuit filed in October by the US Department of Justice, which accuses officials in Meridian, Mississippi, including two youth-court judges, of operating a “school-to-prison pipeline” that pushes children out of school and into the criminal justice system.

    The defendants named in the lawsuit have denied the charges, according to The Associated Press.

    According to the report, “The school-to-prison pipeline is nothing new in Mississippi and it is certainly not unique to Meridian. In fact, it is a problem that has plagued Mississippi schools statewide for years.”

    In “Handcuffs on Success,” the authors make a series of recommendations to Mississippi state legislators, including a more graduated approach to discipline rather than a strict, zero-tolerance policy for minor violations, and saving the most severe consequences such as arrests, referrals to detention centers, and long-term suspensions, for only serious infractions that threaten school safety.

    “We encourage Mississippi legislators and education officials to consider commonsense, tested policies that improve school quality, public safety and economic prosperity,” said Judith Browne Dianis, Co-Director of the Advancement Project, one of the other groups that released the report.

    “Implementing a graduated approach to discipline, and using non-punitive measures focused on preventing misbehavior by providing supportive interventions, have been proven to reduce suspensions and expulsions while creating safe, effective learning environments for our youth,” she added in a statement.

    BLACK Wisconsin SHERIFF Encourages RESIDENTS to ->

    ARM YOURSELVE FOR WAR!

    Goes Head-to-Head with Piers Morgan
    Milwaukee Country Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. and Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett joined Piers Morgan on his show to discuss the sheriff’s radio ad, which urges citizens to consider taking a firearms safety course because “simply calling 911 and waiting is no longer your best option.” Clarke’s point was that with officers laid off and furloughed, police might not be able to respond as quickly as needed. Thus, citizens may want to consider giving themselves another option: learn how to responsibly use a firearm for self-defense. This, of course, doesn’t fly with Morgan, a staunch gun-control advocate, or Mayor Barrett, a co-founder of Mayors Against Illegal Guns.
    In a two-against-one match-up, the gun control gang (mostly Morgan) took issue with everything from Clarke’s “Hollywood” voice in the ad, to the role of the sheriff’s office, and Clarke’s inability to give a figure on how many people in Milwaukee have defended themselves or their family at home with a gun.
    Clarke stood his ground, though—particularly when he brought up the 2009 incident at the Wisconsin State Fair when Mayor Barrett was severely beaten by a man with a tire iron. “I’m sure that if you had a gun and a plan that day, the outcome would have been a little different,” Clarke said. “Personal safety is an individual responsibility,” Clarke argued. Learning how to responsibly use a firearm is just one of the options available to citizens in a life-threatening situation when seconds count and police are only minutes away. Like he pointed out in the radio ad, “You can beg for mercy from a violent criminal, hide under the bed or you can fight back.”
