Who Should Teach Our Students?

For those of you who aren't coming to the REACH event, here's another one next Tuesday:

Teach For America New York

Who Should Teach Our Students?
A panel discussion on the "Last In, First Out" teacher layoff policy
in New York State

Dr. Pedro Noguera
Professor of Education - New York University

Leo Casey
VP Academic High Schools - United Federation of Teachers

Lindsey Christ
Education Reporter - NY 1

Eric Lerum
Engagement Manager - StudentsFirst

Sydney Morris
Co-Founder, Executive Director - Educators 4 Excellence

While most people agree we should try to avoid massive budget cuts to education, opinions vary on what teacher layoffs should look like if they become a reality-and many signs indicate that teacher layoffs in New York City are imminent for the first time in three decades. To date, much of the conversation has focused on the "if", but given the current reality, this conversation will examine the "how" by presenting and debating the merits of alternative teacher layoff proposals currently being considered in the New York State Assembly and Senate.

Time: Tuesday, April 12, 6:30p-8:30p

Urban Assembly School for Design and Construction
525 West 50th Street, 4th Floor (between 10th and 11th Avenues)
