Education Commissioner has not back down to union thugs
Board set to vote June 6, D-Day
Her contract is up Friday June 7
|The state must keep her|
The teachers unions in Rhode Island have bullied and rallied all union hacks to oppose Deborah Gist remaining as the education commissioner. Prior to Gist, Rhode Island public schools were “a race to the bottom ” ,with the most expensive (yet under performing )school system in America. Gist has tried to make teachers accountable for lack of performance in the classroom and math scores that were below that of a third world nation. The teachers union in Rhode Island is all about greed and not about teaching children. Gist has brought leadership and attempted to lift the standards for all the schools. It would be refreshing if Governor Gump could step forward and demonstrate half the courage and leadership Gist has displayed.
Public schools in Rhode Island are controlled by union hacks as opposed to educators. Although many good teachers have told DePetro.com they are bogged down with endless paperwork that they must fill out. Liberal elitist even took a mock NECAP exam and claimed students in school should not be tested! John DePetro has said they should work to make it easier for good teachers, and weed many bad teachers out. Gist must work to bring the good teachers to her side .
