Regents are over. Grades are in.  No learning could possibly take place, yet, the DOE, in its infinite wisdom has decided the following:
Due to snow days this year, the DOE has mandated that Monday, June 27th be an instructional day. In addition, students will receive a list of their Fall 2011 courses in Periods 2 and 9. Therefore, on June 27th we will schedule 30 minute classes .
This is nothing more than teacher punishment.  Nobody will be doing anything.

You are telling me, this is worthless.

They did the same thing last year. They moved the August punishment days, negotiated in the 05 contract, to June and are determined to extract the last drop of blood from every working teacher for no reason whatsoever. Due to snow days?

If you believe that, I have a bridge to sell you.

They are beyond stupid. This is a total waste. It has NOTHING to do with "instruction". It has to do with getting state $$$ to make up for the snow days. We had more than the required 180 instructional days. No one will benefit from this insanity. No kids will be around for this idiocy.
