  1. Interested in learning more about the requirements for possible consideration of
    inclusion of the class of teachers re-dressing the DOE for wrongful termination

  2. I taught for 12 years at the DOE before being targeted
    by PS 24x Principal Steve Schwartz, with his trumped up 3020a charges. Yes, this is the same Steve Schwartz infamous for his repeated gambling on horses races during school hours in 2017/2018… and again the next year. The same one who pressured administrators to give teachers in the building low scores on their observations. And, the same Steve Schwartz, who according to yesterday’s NY Post article, also bribed his teachers with extra preps in return for praising his leadership at a public community board meeting to be held 11/24/19. Schwartz created and sustained bogus disciplinary charges vs. me and gave me a slew of poor evaluations, perhaps as retaliation for contacting OSI after he and his assistant principal made me watch 90 students in the auditorium for an hour with no other adults to help me supervise the three classes, which included an ICT class.
    I retired on 9/18/18 rather than deal with the demoralizing and demonizing hearing process that lay ahead. Is this a case that would be suited for the prospective class action? Thanks for your reply.

  3. Was forced into retirement in 2016. I have an appeal.

  6. 1. Need to know if Unsatisfactory Formal Observation may be knocked out for failure of Rating Officer to conduct a post-conference.
    2. I thought a post-conference had to be conducted within 335 days.

  7. 1. Need to know Time frame that Rating Oficer has to conduct post-conference of Unsatisfactory Observation.

    2. I thought a post-conference had to be conducted within 335 days.

  8. Senior teachers were harassed and given multiple ineffective ratings after 49 years of service. The principal Tina Hernandez systemically terminated and forced at least 13 teachers into retirement or welfare.

  9. My efforts to save my career after 27 years has failed and at this point feel exhausted and defeated. I worked for the New York City Department of Education for 27 years and during my 3 years under the current Principal at the school I taught in for 12 years, the school deliberately violated IDEA and the rights of students with special needs by placing me in an ICT class without a special education teacher. This attempt to defame my abilities based on my current age and my years of service at the maximum salary, which ended my career with the NYCDOE in June 2019. In attempt to whistle blow the special education violation, I was falsely accused of misconduct and incompetence, when the school administration knew that they were not providing me with the secondary support required to be an effective teacher to all students.

    A Petition of was filed to the NYS Supreme Court level that also favored the DOE after I lost the Arbitration hearing. What recourse do I have at this point, if any? I would like to get on the class action suit if possible in an effort to clear my record, as I was set-up for failure
