Mulgrew morphs

I'm really happy to learn that UFT Prez Michael Mulgrew has changed his angle on the school closings issue.

His campaign to label Tweed "Mismanagement Central" — which lasted about a week-and-a-half and got my knickers in a twist in a post last Saturday — seems to be morphing into something else.

You can't find the word "mismanagement" at all in an editorial he wrote for the Daily News two days ago. I did a word search, it's not there.

Mulgrew's now calling Klein's ed policies "misguided," which is a few steps closer to the way I'd describe Tweed's sociopathy.

I suspect we'll be watching Mulgrew test-drive one so-called strategy after another as he tries to protect teachers against the very people his caucus has been collaborating with for a decade.

What a position they've put us in.
What a waste of labor clout.


  1. You beat me to it about how the UFT aided the Tweed "mismanagement" for the last eight years.

    Now I will have to write a different post.

  2. Write it anyway.You're good at the details.

  3. I've said this before, but neither of those words really makes the point for me. I'd go for "sabotage" instead, because both the others suggest this course of action is somehow unintentional.
