I endorse Vince Gray for mayor. Teachers should be allowed to retire with dignity, respect, and appreciation for the many years of service to the children of DCPS. Since Michelle Rhee started firing teachers, she first fired 400 with her 90 day plan, 266 with the RIF, before Impact she fired 600, and with Impact 241 with 700 more teachers put on notice. What is not being talked about is the large number of veteran teachers that were not rehired after 6 schools were reconstituted. This mayor and chancellor have released some hard working and dedicated professionals who did not deserve to lose their jobs. There has to be a better way to treat teachers who have dedicated so many years of their lives with DCPS. Shame on Adrian Fenty and shame on Michelle Rhee. 35 year professional educator known as teacher, Jerome Brocks
