The District’s labor-management relations board has upheld an arbitrator’s decision ordering the D.C. Public Schools to rehire 75 new teachers fired in 2008 by then-Schools Chancellor Michelle A. Rhee.You know, I have little doubt that at least some of these teachers should have been let go. So if she really cared about the kids, St. Michelle of Arc would have made sure she did it the right way so these people couldn't get back into a classroom. Why didn't she?
The Public Employee Relations Board, which rules on disputes between city agencies and labor unions, said in a Sept. 15 decision that arbitrator Charles Feigenbaum acted appropriately in February when he ordered the teachers reinstated with back pay, which could total as much as $7.5 million.
Feigenbaum said the dismissals were improper because the teachers, who were in their two-year probationary period, were not told why they were let go. He called it the “glaring and fatal flaw” in Rhee’s action.
It couldn't it be that a woman who spends $100,000 for a makeover is maybe more interested in her image than in good education practices, could it?
Did you get my good side?
