No More Teacher Terrorists
Good news. Teachers in our building no longer have to be scanned for weapons twice a day. Why the change of tune?
It could have been intervention from the Union. I did write a letter to the Queens UFT Representative. The Reassigned Teachers Representative did visit the building.
It could have been the fact that two of us insisted on signing in and receiving a visitor's pass every time we had to walk through the weapons scanner and then called an attorney, and asked what we could do about our situation and the reply was that we could file an injunction against further weapons scanning.
Or the administrators of our building might have decided that it wasn't fair to force some workers to be scanned for weapons and allow other workers to walk on through.
Whatever the reason, I now show my drivers license and bypass the scanner. Hopefully that will continue indefinitely.
