We hear the term "bad teacher" thrown around in schools, homes and in the media to support the attacks against them. Cities are laying off teachers in droves because of lack of money and failing education systems. Is it the teachers faults that these systems are failing? Are the schools saturated with so many bad teachers that our children aren't learning? Or does society create the bad teacher as a villain? Tune or Call in to weigh on this topic
This Tuesday night, February 28 at 9 PM EST United Federation of Teachers Vice President Leo Casey joins us live to discuss the new NYS as well as NYC teacher evaluation that Governor Andy Cuomo brokered. Mr Casey wrote a piece defending, as well as explaining, the new evaluation agreement at Edwize (the official blog of the UFT) yesterday, http://www.edwize.org/setting-the-record-straight-on-teacher-evaluations-scoring-and-the-role-of-standardized-exams and has taken a lot of heat. Though we at SBSB disagree with Leo, we do applaud him for taking the heat.

Please join Dave the Mystic on February 16th at 8PM MST for a discussion of what is involved in finding a spiritual teacher or metaphysical teacher. This is becoming a critical issue as the energies continue to increase and many find themselves getting downloads, intuitive hits, and other phenomena that provide motivation to get answers and move forward. We are seeing many who have found themselves in an uncomfortable place where they have to grow and have a need for a teacher or guide or mentor. All of these roles will be discussed along with criteria to consider when finding a teacher. Calls will be welcome.

This coming Tuesday night, June 14 at 9 PM EDT. One of the most egregious cases of Teacher Abuse ever!
My guest works in a District 26 MS. She has been with the DOE for 12 years. Her current principal hired her at his school. She went back into the classroom signed a grievance, got a U rated lesson. She then became chapter leader and never got anything but U ratings.She is now facing termination charges for incompetence based on 3 years of observations that are poorly written fiction. There has to be someone to look into all of the authority that principals are being given. The evil villains are being trained en mass at the Leadership Academy and then are continuing to be empowered by the Teacher Performance Unit (TPU).A good teacher removed and subject to this humiliation while the DOE pays an "attorney", to write up formalized papers Her finger prints are flagged, so that all chance of extra income, tutoring, camp counselor, is lost. She has lost so many employment opportunities due to this man's vendetta. Some attention needs to be paid to the smoke and mirrors of Last In First Out as that whole argument just allows the DOE to prosecute tenured teachers and have them removed. If we examined this issue more closely, we would see that this same principal has brought these charges on 3 teachers in less than 6 months, all of whom earn at least $76,000. In essence if this attack is successful and this principal does in fact win all of the cases he will have managed to cut $250,000.00 from his budget.
