Yogi Berra stopped by Bronx Charter School for Children in the South Bronx Thursday afternoon.† The baseball legend met with a small group of students and staff at the high performing K-5 school located less than a mile from Yankee Stadium.
Teachers at KIPP AMP are using their voice to part ways with the UFT. (Not linking yet, due to privacy concerns.)
In happier times, the “union of professionals” called them “a great group of courageous, intelligent educators determined to do the best by their students and their school.”
I have a feeling they still are.
This afternoon, the Charter Schools Institute of SUNY presented its renewal recommendation for the UFT Charter School.* The recommendation is for a short-term renewal (three years instead of the maximum five).† The school failed to achieve a full-term recommendation because it did not have a compelling and consistent record of meeting its academic achievement goals.† Instead, its outcomes were mixed.
