Your Last Day of Freedom

Well, here you are, a New York City teacher going back to work tomorrow, and what can you do? You're facing two full days of fun and frolic, listening to speeches about what a great job the chancellor is doing. And it's true. Who else could've negotiated a contract that robs you of your Labor Day weekend for the sole purpose of listening to two full days of blah, blah, blah? Who else would've even thought of such a thing?

Aren't you better off sitting in a meeting than driving to Maine with your family, laying about on beaches, eating lobster, and getting very little of substance accomplished (I used to do that on Labor Day weekend)? After all, how would that improve test scores? Well, sure, two days of indoctrination may not improve test scores either, but at least they'll get you focused on whatever it is they want you to focus on.

What are you doing on this last golden day?

Enquiring minds want to know.
