We do not have to go to the "On Education" Breakfast hosted by City Hall Magazine and Gotham Schools. In fact, we need to boycott the breakfast. Do you really want to pay to hear a group of people talk among themselves about how wonderful the state of public school education is, and how much Mayor Michael Bloomberg has done to help our children?
If you really want to know what they are saying wait for the review on the Gotham Schools' blog.
Here is the email that I sent to J Freeman and Anthony Hawkins:

subject Education Forum
I received an email to attend the Education Forum at Con Edison on August 25, 2011, and as a member of the press who writes about issues surrounding the disasters known as the New York City Department of Education, the Rubber Rooms, and the United Federation of Teachers (for whom I worked as staff for 3 years and I am writing a book on) I would have considered attending in order to write a scathing article about how no one on the Panel knows what they are talking about or would admit to same, I dont think I will take my valuable time to listen to the same rubbish that I have heard regurgitated over and over again since 2002.
Your arrogance that you would believe you can continue to stuff the false facts that the people on your panel cite down any informed parent, teacher, or informed citizen's throat now, after all the blogs and websites out there are touting the real facts, is astonishing.

A close-up look at NYC education policy, politics,and the people who have been, are now, or will be affected by these actions and programs. ATR CONNECT assists individuals who suddenly find themselves in the ATR ("Absent Teacher Reserve") pool and are the "new" rubber roomers, people who have been re-assigned from their life and career. A "Rubber Room" is not a place, but a process.
