Is It Any Wonder?


This comes from “News of the Weird” – At any one time, the New York City school system is forced to keep about 1,600 teachers on full salary and benefits (costing about $100 million per year) even though  they cannot be required to work.  Six hundred are in a multi-year arbitration process for terminable misconduct or incompetence, and 1,000 are long-term layoffs from shuttered schools but whom principals continually pass over for transfer.

Is it any wonder that I can’t get a teaching position in the system?
