DCPS Chancellor Rhee and the head of the D.C. teachers union George Parker held a meeting the other day to see how many teachers would be open to accepting early retirement. The answer - all of them:
"I think we would have the largest number of teachers we've ever had [retire]. I think you could say in the hundreds," Parker said. "We've gone through seven superintendents in 10 years. That is a lot of change to adjust to. A lot of them don't like the chancellor's approach."The uncertainty, instability and change swirling around the traditional D.C. public schools can only help drive charter enrollment still higher. If you are a quality teacher looking to practice your profession in a quality environment please call Mary Robbins, Arts Partnership Director at the William E. Doar, Jr. Public Charter School for the Performing Arts at 202 269-4646.
