1) This deal was announced and voted on very quickly. As happened with our most recent contract, there was almost no time to debate or ask questions about it. 30 minutes is not enough for something that will impact us for likely most of (if not the entire) school year.
2) It did not mention anything about students eating lunch inside with pedagogues. This is a big sticking point to me as it is something NYC currently does not allow (Indoor dining).
3) The testing plan is one I'm skeptical of because a) it relies on current infrastructure to handle a massive increase in load and b) I'm not sure I believe the DOE will handle things well (severe lack of trust there).
So, the deal went through, even though I (along with 18% of delegates) voted against it. We'll see how this pans out.
