Discarding Rules to Give Teachers a Say
Sobol's comments are in follow-up to UFT's proposal for 75 to 150 schools to pare-down rules that govern everything from the length of classes to the amount of teacher preparation time. In exchange, principals would work more closely with their staffs, allowing them more flexibility as well as the chance to help develop their individual schools' work rules. "That sounds so enlightened," Sobol said, "it puts me on my guard."
