Written by Andre on November 18, 2021
The latest news coming out of the Rochester City School District is the vote of ‘no confidence’ by the teachers in the district. The vote of ‘no confidence’ is for Superintendent Dr. Leslie Meyers Small’s plan for the increased violence in schools.
93% of teachers voted they have ‘no confidence’ in the Superintendent’s plan to keep teachers, students, and staff in schools safe amid the violence. Just about 85% of the teachers that took the survey said they are concerned for their own safety as well as students in school.
The Rochester Teachers Association did the survey.
Superintendent Leslie Meyers-Small’s statement regarding the RTA vote:
“I am not deterred by the action the RTA Representative Assembly has taken today. My team and I have been engaged in partnership with all of our union leaders. We are actively present at our schools and interact with many students, teachers, and staff in our District. As superintendent, I am always open to continuous improvement and welcome constructive feedback. The work we have started will continue with a steadfast focus on the health and safety of our students and staff.”
