Teachers, Please REPLY with what your largest class size was/is. And Counselors, Please REPLY with how many students you are responsible for personally.

"As the bus driver shortage continues, parents and drivers, often women on both sides, have been stretched to the breaking point as they try to do more with less — less time, less money, less help, less of a sense of safety and respect."

We also need to repeal the punitive receivership law, which pressures educators to “teach to the test”. @nysut @AFTunion @NEAToday @NYSAFLCIO

NYC classrooms have 30% more students than those in the rest of the state. Our students deserve the same opportunities as everyone else. We need City Council Speaker Corey Johnson to bring the class size bill to a vote.

Parents of Michigan shooter: 1. Bought him a 9mm Sig Sauer SP 2022 pistol as a present on Black Friday 2. When a teacher caught him searching for ammunition of his phone, his mom texted: "LOL I'm not mad at you. You have to learn not to get caught."

5. The parents have been charged with involuntary manslaughter but, as of right now, have "gone missing." According to the NYT, "the county’s fugitive-apprehension team, F.B.I. agents and United States Marshals were looking for the couple"

3. When his teacher found a note saying "help me," “The thoughts won’t stop" and and "blood everywhere," his parents refused to send him to counseling or send him home 4. His mom texted "Ethan don't do it" and his dad reported the gun missing AFTER the shooting was reported

@Eugene_Scott Remember this from Oct? "Sept payrolls increased by 312,000, up from the disappointing 194,000 previously reported. August brought back 483,000 jobs, versus the 366,000 posted". The question should be why are the initial reports so wrong.

If you got your COVID-19 vaccine before June, now is the time to get a booster shot. All adults are eligible for the booster—just go to to find a vaccine and booster location near you.

Where do I even begin with this? The United States has one of the highest maternal and infant mortality rates of all developed nations. Forcing a woman to go through pregnancy puts her life and health at risk — especially for women of color.

Well said @SharkeyCTU1 “More than 120,000 children in the United States, which includes many throughout our state, have lost a primary caregiver due to COVID-19. Where is the report on the trauma they have experienced, or on how school districts are using federal recovery funds?
