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.
