Everyone's voice must be heard ... Submitted to NBEA
I am a teacher at an elementary school in New Bedford. I first would like to thank each and every parent that is supporting us in our time of need. My second statement would be for everyone who is unhappy with the direction of the school system, please show your support not only by writing into the blog but into the newspapers, to our city council, and also and most importantly attend our school committee meetings. We, including teachers, all must band together now more than ever to show Dr Durkin that she cannot bully us any longer. A lot of teachers have stayed silent and not attended because they didn't think the climate of fear would creep into their schools. I sadly am one of those teachers. Unfortunately, the climate of fear and misery has creeped into my school. I will be at every school committee meeting from now on, not to speak but to just show that I care. We need people to gather into these meeting so she knows she is losing her grip. Please parents, taxpayers, make yourself seen at the next school committee meeting and for those of you who have stories to tell, tell them. Everyone's voice must be heard!!!!
