Weingarten Accuses DOE of Age Discrimination

Randi Weingarten, UFT President, says a disproportionate number of complaints are aimed against over-40 DOE employees and that this is, in effect, discriminatory.

Sixty-three percent of the teachers' union members are older than 40, but they made up 85 percent of tenured teachers and administrators brought up on disciplinary charges last year.

The DOE denies all charges, and states that it's interested only in Mom, apple pie, and puppy dogs.

Chancellor Klein, however, refused to articulate precisely what was being done with said puppy dogs.
