A word about Ednotes
If we don't link readers over to Ednotes all the time, it's because blog author Norm Scott, one of the 20 or 25 founding members of ICE, puts up new posts two or three times a day.
Whatever he says over there is relevant and most probably in sync with the ICE agenda.
Why only most probably? Because the ICE caucus is what its name says: a group of independent educators who think generally along the same progressive lines when it comes to education and union activity.
Scott's knowledge of the NYC ed world is comprehensive, and we're grateful for his insight, quick wit, and tireless blitzkrieg on the shortcomings of Unity caucus.

The November 2008 ATR rally debacle
View Norm Scott's videos Part I here and Part II here of the rally Weingarten and her Unity lackeys sabotaged a year ago down at Tweed. Instead of meeting up with the protesters as planned, Weingarten invited all the ATRs down to UFT HQ for an "informational" wine-and-cheese party at exactly the same time.
They even directed people getting off the subway at Tweed to walk down to 52 Broadway instead.
See Michael Mulgrew speaking at UFT HQ at 4:25 p.m. while the rest of us were protesting BloomKlein's brutality.
This is not union leadership. It is playing games with our careers and livelihood.
