Letter making the rounds, addressed to Lane et al:
"During these dire times in education across the nation, but especially in the Pittsburgh Public School District, we- the newly hired- are in great despair about the future of our careers. We understand the painful need to downsize while we are constantly being reminded of "equity" in the Pittsburgh Public School system.
To that end, we are also prepared to collectively take to task LEGALLY any favoritism,(be it racially motivated or politically driven), or nepotism in jobs or positions that are kept or created for staff, academic coaches, teachers or administrators while dismissing others with the same years of service or educational background.
Please be assured of our continued committment and respect for the Pittsburgh Public Schools, but that we expect the same in return.
Equity for all!
Your Future PPS Educators"
