From the Times Union:
Sorry I just spit out my milk. There are zero teachers in Duval County who say to themselves let me make my kids miserable and lets drill a little more so I can get paid. None. Nadda, Zilch. There are also zero teachers in Duval County who think their kids need two and a half hours of ELA each and every day and couldn’t use 20 minutes of free play.
Him saying and thinking so shows he does not have idea one what teachers do and think.
That however wasn’t the only ridiculous thing that he said. When addressing recess he said.
“At this point, I don’t feel comfortable putting constraints on our teachers,” Vitti said.
Um has he not seen the pacing guide, the scripted lessons, the two page lesson plans, is he not aware of the gotcha walk throughs from district staff, their insistence that all classrooms be uniform? All the district does is put constraints on its teachers and he has to know that!!!!!!!
He has no problem putting ridiculous constraints on teachers in other areas but hey with recess, he can’t touch that one.
Friends, um, err, what?!?
Vitti continues to fundamentally misunderstand teachers and then in my opinion attempts to blatantly mislead about how the district is run. For shame.
