Thoughts on the Minneapolis Public Schools bargaining contract that includes layoff protection for POC staff that would override the seniority system? In summary, the contract states that if layoffs/reductions in staff need to occur, non-POC (white staff) will be cut first, regardless of seniority, retaining staff POC.

Somehow I had not even heard of this until today. A sniper opened fire on a school in the DC area, with four legally purchased rifles, and fired over 200 shots in a matter of minutes. This was near a lot of high profile targets so there were counter sniper teams on the scene before long but it still took *five hours* to subdue the shooter.

Luckily nobody died, but this is comic-book level dystopian shit. I’d love to hear how a “GGWAG” would have stopped this.

Advice needed. I’m leaving an incredibly toxic work environment (admin, students, parents, etc) for my dream job. I already resigned, but my students don’t know yet. I knew if I told them, their behavior would be even worse. How would you explain to the kids you’re leaving? I don’t want my P to know I’ve been hired elsewhere, so I don’t want to tell them I have a new position, but I also don’t want them to think they ran me off (or that I got fired, lol). I’m leaving next week.

Help! I’m a decent teacher but admin has a target on my back this year & NO ONE knows why. I’m receiving my second write-up for an absolutely ridiculous reason (my rep agrees that it’s total crap but they manipulate the wording just-so to make it sound legit), but a third & I can be fired. I have to finish the year where I am to have my student loans forgiven. I’m terrified to go to work every day. A large part of my future is on the line & I’m stuck. It’s so unjust but I have no recourse.

Small town teachers....how do you get past the insulation? I can’t talk to anyone in my district about issues I’m having with admin because it’s a small town & they cover each other and gaslight you. The school district only cares about their PR and has vague policies that keep us from saying against them, yet we can’t say anything TO them either. My union rep is trying to help but she also said that it’s all too common for small towns. They always win & you just have to suck it up or get fired.

So our school board just fired our principal last tonight. He was terrible for the last five years but decided now would be a good time. Our head secretary who has been here for 30 years took a different position at another site two weeks ago because of that principal. We start school in three weeks with no principal, no head secretary, and no schedule for distance learning. Please pray for me 😐

Switched from T2 to MBB and starting this month (post undergrad level). Given the way the economy is trending, is this a bad time or an okay time? Are layoffs amongst the junior-most resources something to be wary about at MBB? Is MBB a safer bet generally than T2 in deep recessions?

I think I’m about to get let go, along other senior folks, because my agency is top heavy and not quite hitting our numbers. I need minor eye surgery for a condition that they know about.

Will that affect their decision to let me go if it seems like it is medical or age related (turn 45 tomorrow). Will it help my severance negotiations? I want to hold on to this job as long as possible.
