I stopped by and was pleasantly surprised to see hundreds of people organized by Brooklyn’s District 15. I’m proud to say that a number of MORE chapter leaders and supporters played a major role in this, but also that the UFT did their part in a good spirit of working together on this project.
District 15, the home of the NYC opt-out movement (along with District 6 in upper Manhattan) had a different focus than the standard UFT line, with high stakes testing and common core having equal weight to Cuomo’s anti-public school proposals, which is the UFT’s line. There was room for all positions at this rally — and that is important – the UFT leadership did not and could not take sole control of the message.

More photos and videos to come from all the MORE-UFT chapters that mobilized to fight back against the attacks on our public schools!
