The following was submitted as a comment to an old posting entitled "Absent Teacher Reserve is a misleading name." Not too many people look at that posting anymore, but we thought that this comment deserved to be available to everyone. Here it is:
I am wondering if there are any ATRs who are angry enough to file an action against the UFT and DOE for their treatment of senior teachers placed in this pool of harassment to get us to leave. I for one have about had it with all the lip service given us and the bogus job fairs. No one wants us because of our salaries, egos, and age. Pleasecontact me at:
If they want us to leave then pay us out. Do not push us from site to site with the premise that if a principal gets to know you, you'll be hired--this is nonsense. When are we going to band together to stop this madness?!
