Many teachers have come to look at the PFT as being a shell of what it once was, a group that at one time did teachers a great good in garnering better salaries and working conditions. That time has come and past a decade or more ago. We now have secret votes for contracts and union positions and as such, few veteran teachers look upon PFT leadership as being a beacon that will lead our cause.In fact, the 50% policy was endorsed by PFT leadership, as were most issues that now affect the daily classroom teacher. This is a bleak time for caring teachers within this district. Parents should know what is going on.
