Leave her alone. You're part of the reason why few people want to deal with NYC's underserved kids. [ Reply | More ]
General Topics 08.29.14, 08:56 PM Flag

Lots of charter schools want to serve NYC's underserved kids. They locate in neighborhoods with poor public schools, give priority to low-income kids, and keep as many students as they can because they believe that even struggling students deserve a good education. Eva Moskowitz now locates many of her NEW schools in affluent neighborhoods and outright refuses to give preference to low-income students who are zoned for failing public schools. That is why the majority of students in her schools in Union Square, Cobble Hill, UWS, Hells Kitchen are not poor! She is happy to serve a few of the poor kids, just not too many. Is that the model for public education? We will serve a few poor kids, but not too many? Because it allows her to insult all public schools and bash the teachers who teach kids who are difficult? That is NOT helping the vast majority of underserved kids. Why is she bashing the schools that do serve them? Shameful. [ Reply | More ]

Don't you get more sabbatical/teaching relief in your US based institution than friends teaching in Europe or Canada?

I would be really, really sure you want it before asking. I took one six month leave and it seemed long.

They're not like weddings you've ever been to. I found them weird because there's no expectation that people actually pay attention to the wedding. It goes on for like 4 hours and people get up, chat, walk around, at some point they wheel food out DURING the ceremony and people start eating. [ Reply | More ]

OP - I haven't bought the dress yet. It is on hold and I thought I'd come home and do some research first because western wedding rules are usually "no red" and I didn't know what applied to Indian weddings, especially for the Sangeet party. The dress code says "traditional Indian or semi-formal." [ Reply | More ]

np: but why is it a choice that has to be justified. why is not WOH "lazy"? and why is not being able to juggle a FT WOH job PLUS kids a crime that you need to defend. everyone has different skills, talents and abilities. i do not cook well, i get annoyed 2 seconds into playing pretend but I am amazed with parents (or really any adult) who can make up stories, make up a game involving a box a spoon and a hat, sing silly songs for an hour, etc. TO ME, that is hard. so maybe to someone else, endless boring meetings and cowtowing to a a** of a boss is hard. we all have our crosses to bear.

All I know is that I chose to SAH because I observed how stressed working moms were when I was working before I had kids. They were stressed and not fully present at their jobs. And they certainly weren't present at home. No one can hack 2 full time jobs and be good at both. I get that some people have to work for money. That sucks. But if you don't have to work, but you chose to work I think you are selfish. [ Reply | More ]

You know, fantasy is fine, as long as it doesn't interrupt or hinder your real life. If you recognize that you're dreaming and it's never going to happen, I think it's no big deal. But if you find yourself making decisions (like going to visit the mutual friend in hopes you'll see him), recognize it's unhealthy and take a week off FB. [ Reply | More ]
