Bloggers don't have breaking news. They have these "OMG"moments that they just have to share.
According to Francesco Portelos' Twitter account, the UFT sent a letter to the DOE asking that Portelos be sent back to the classroom. I haven't seen the letter, but if Francesco says so, then it must be true.
They don't really do that too often. That they did is worth a blog post.
It's also worth a thank you! Every time my union goes to bat for a teacher, they go to bat for the rest of us too (that's sort of how things work with unions). Moments like this make me proud to be a member of the UFT.
Francesco's tweet is below.
