Fenty, Rhee Today to Detail Teacher Buy Outs

Mayor Adrian Fenty and Schools Chancellor Michelle Rhee at 3 are scheduled to announce details of an early-out program for veteran teachers.

As The Post reported first on March 27, the program is expected to spur a huge exodus of veteran educators who are fed up with declining working conditions and skeptical of Rhee's initiatives.

Fenty is extending to teachers the same early-retirement program offered to veteran employees in other city agencies.

Recent workshops held to gauge interest in the program had drawn a standing-room-only crowd, according to Washington Teachers' Union President George Parker, who said he expected hundreds of teachers to take advantage of the offer.

"...program is expected to spur a huge exodus of veteran educators who are fed up with declining working conditions and skeptical of Rhee's initiatives."


Reasons could also be for ineffective teachers who finally realized how bad they are or have retired on the job and finally got incentive to leave.

There are A LOT of terrible teachers making too much money in DCPS. Thank you WTU for protecting them. Job well done.

If the principals would do their jobs then there wouldn't be any terrible teachers making too much money! WTU CANNOT protect documentation! Principals' need to get off their a$$ and do their jobs and stop blaming others!
