Michael Mulgrew on WNYC’s “The Brian Lehrer Show”

Radio host Brian Lehrer spoke with UFT President Michael Mulgrew and WNYC reporter Beth Fertig this morning about Mayor Bloomberg’s announcement on Sept. 27 of a new education plan that included “ending tenure as we know it, so that tenure is awarded for performance, not taken for granted.” They also touch upon President Obama’s statement on the “Today” show that he would like to see a longer school year, and the issue of private funding for public education.

    Very good interview! Michael Mulgrew was articulate and came into his own as the show progressed. The union needs to continue to take the offensive by getting the message out to the general public in as many ways as possible about what’s at stake for the city’s children if the demoralizing drumbeat against teachers continues and succeeds in decimating the profession.
