The Idiots Who Run Charters

Charters are like, not good. The people who run em aren't, ya know, sophisticated like we are. They don't talk good, and what they do talk about, ya know, is not Shakespeare and jazz music. I love shakepspeare, especially the parts that have jazz music.

But those charter guys, they're all like duh, we like charters. As you know, we in the UFT run our own charter, and we never say like duh, we like charters, because we're all like, hey let's go listen to jazz and talk about shakespeare. That's because we're from New York, and everyone knows New Yorkers are smarter than everyone in the rest of the country, especially those morons who are all like, duh we like charters. Why don't they like shakespeare and jazz, like us classy teacher types?

Everyone knows why these people tell lies, and it's because they're all like, duh unions are no good. Well, I'm here to tell you they're very good. I clear 120,000 bucks a year (before doing special jobs, so watch out you punk bastards thinking about criticizing me, goddamnit) and that's more than those charter school teachers make. In fact, that's more than public school teachers make.

We're all like, let's make things better for teachers, and that's why we have them doing potty patrol and teaching the sixth class (which is not a sixth class, you dirtbag lying bastards) and getting suspended without pay over nothing. We teachers (and by that I mean you teachers) are all modern and updated.

We worked hard to negotiate that last contract. We went to PERB, took whatever the hell they gave us, and sold it to the duespayers. Do you think that was easy? Do you know how many arms I had to twist (and break) to make that happen?

So don't go defending the idiots who rund charters to me. Well, I gotta go see if there's any shakespeare on the tube, because I gotta spend the extra hour here in UFT headquarters. Here's one "Shakespeare in Lust," on the After Dark channel, which runs 24/ 7 (I know.)

Gotta go improve my mind. Your comments are welcome, but remember we know who you are, duespayers.

These are lies, vicious lies, you lying vicious liar!

Stop telling this lies, and tell different ones.

Cleo, baby, I detect a different voice in your always brilliant prose. I hope you're not dumbing down your message for the ignorant rank and file. That rabble will never understand that you are a true unionist, and not the Minister of Propaganda. Be yourself, baby.

I've had enough of this crap. The contract is crap. Crap is crap. What's the deal with all this crap?

It's crap, I say.

Let me get this straight? We like charters or we don't? Or do we only like the UFT Charter School? Please help me so I can parrot the party line when I go back to the schools in August.

This blog is now very depressing. What happened? All you guys away on Unity vacations? Please write again Cleo.
