Re: “How a CPS teacher went from 'excellent' to 'do-not-hire' in one year

I requested a conference with the Black Caucus to address the mass firing of African American teachers, and still have not heard from them, nor any of the Black politicians. Well let's see. If they can take our jobs, maybe we should take their jobs. Since most of us will be forced to become cadres next year, then it should give us plenty of time to rally and look for replacements. We should do the same thing that we are accused of being. They are BAD POLITICIANS, AND FAILED TO MEET THE NEEDS OF THE PEOPLE, THEREFORE THEY SHOULD BE REPLACED BY THE BEST AND THE BRIGHTEST. It is also suggested that some of us should run for office. UPSET THE POLITICAL PLAYING FIELD. BY THE WAY, I INTEND TO RUN FOR ALDERMAN IN THE 9TH WARD.

Re: “How a CPS teacher went from 'excellent' to 'do-not-hire' in one year

Is anyone aware the CVCA H.S. is not on probation and not in turnaround as previously designated, causing the mass displacement of teachers and other forced to retire because of a vicious plan for a "dictator" to have his way with peoples lives. Mr. Maclin and the Chicago Public Schools, used our student's scores, and progress to get the school off probation, but during the hearing on February 3, 2012 at CPS, it was stated that it was done deal because the staff failed to meet the requirements of bringing the students to grade level. They were so devious at CVCA, students that performed exceptionally well on the tests, their scores were not posted, in fact they were not allowed to see their scores. Per Ms. Donald, Asst, Principal, it was just an error, don't worry about it! I WANT MY JOB BACK....

The same thing happened to me and the teachers at CVCA H.S. A new principal came in, and he hired an Assistant Principal to finish his dirty work. Both the principal, Maclin, and his Asst. Principal Donald also fired from her last school. In fact she was just walked out of CVCA H.S. this summer for being part of the "theft" of federal school money, because her children were receiving free lunch, and she made how much? She also lied on the staff and me stating that we did not turn in lesson plans. I have the Emails of the past lesson plans sent to her. The principal lowered me from Excellent to Unsatisfactory and falsified the dates of coming to observe my class. One of the dates I was not even at work.
