Teachers Union Sues To Keep All Lesson Plans SECRET

The United Federation of Teachers, the New York City branch of the American Federation of Teachers, has filed a lawsuit asking a judge to rule that teachers — and teachers alone — have the authority to make lesson plans for children in taxpayer-funded public schools.


The case was filed late last week in the Manhattan Supreme Court (which is actually the lowest-level court), according to EAGnews.org.


The union is staking its claim on a decision by an arbitrator last May. The arbitrator, Deborah Gaines, concluded that all teachers must create lesson plans but that “the specifics of the plan will be left to the professional judgment of the teacher.”


In her arbitration decision, Gaines denied a request by the United Federation of Teachers to prevent principals and other school officials from reviewing the lesson plans of individual teachers.Scissors-32x32.png
