Is Maverick Education Partnership (CFN 407) Complicit in PS 154's Failing??
Is it funny, the ironic kind of funny, how Uncle Mike and his henchmen want to publicly out teachers TDR's and shame teachers? Yet, where is the voracious callings to show what those who are running the schools actually do, where they are, and what their assessments are?
In the "olden days" schools were part of a district and received support services from these districts. Parents who had issues with their schools, or with the district, knew where to go. These offices were located in the same community as their school and at worse was probably a bus ride away.
Now school pay these networks to supervise and support them. Not only that, the schools are as disparate geographically as they educationally.
But try to find one of the offices of these so called networks, or "children first networks." Like trying to fin the office of Universal Exports, these office locations, and roles, are a closely guarded state secret.

1. Does this "Network" gibberish exist anywhere outside NYC?
Click the link for the "Maverick" Network youtube video and count how many meaningless educational cliches the
"leader" manages to squeeze into just 6 + minutes.
Leaving unanswered the questions:
Who exactly ARE you ?
What exactly do you DO?
and most importantly
How exactly are you compensated for your services?
Near as I can tell, the Network system is a scam to bloat the ranks of the upper bureaucracy ( "leaders" and "consultants" etc) which seems to be comprised of former or retired principals who get this gig via "old boy ( and old girl) network" ( no pun intended) connections.
Good way to enhance one's retirement income, no? And apparently its not illegal. ( Or IS it?) And no one *really* knows what's going on.
Also checkout the parents' link on the NYC DOE page ( there's a link to the DOE page on the SBS blog ): "Find Out Who is Supporting Your Child's School". ( It's broken. That's helpful.)
