Here’s an interesting and important story from NY Daily News’ Williams. There is a dispute in New York about summer school hiring. The Klein Administration wants to hire based on perceived merit, the UFT wants summer school hiring done on seniority. Raises two big questions. First, program quality appears to be better under a non-seniority arrangement. Second, if Klein loses the case, which is currently under arbitration, big costs for the school system in back pay. Worth watching, particularly against the backdrop of bigger contract issues in Gotham.
