I have never counted the days until the end of the school year until I could start counting them on my fingers.
Because of the ridiculous fact that we have to come back on Monday, the 28th, there are now eleven more school days until the end of the 2009-2010 school year; but what the heck, I'll start counting anyway.
It's also eleven more days until the infamous NYC Rubber Rooms are closed forever--that is, if BloomKlein honor their word. But that would mean that they would have to be honorable men, which they are not.
No one knows yet what will happen to the Rubber Room detainees; not even, I suspect, BloomKlein. Let's remember that the Rubber Room is not about real estate; it's about people whose professional reputation is under assault.
Nevertheless, I celebrate the closing of this chapter in BloomKlein's war on public education. It's time to reflect on what they have done to us here, and what we have done to each other.
