Thinking About a Charter Gig?

I just got an email from a charter school teacher. Two teachers at the school just found out their insurance lapsed. Apparently, the charter had only contracted the company until March.


They only discovered this when they got bills. Fortunately they had some money saved, as being on call for parents for hours after every work day pretty much precludes costly and wasteful social activity.

As Mayor Bloomberg moves toward charterizing public schools, with the explicit blessings of UFT President Randi Weingarten, perhaps your principal will one day choose and pay for your health plan too. Expect little growing pains like these.

After all, you can't make an omelette without breaking a few eggs.
