‘I don’t believe in anything’: Teacher refuses to give up her job, says it’s ‘a waste of money’

By K.V. Singh | 10 January, 2018 02:20:00With a budget of about $1.4 million, the $300 million Bridgeport public school in Bridgeport, Connecticut, has managed to raise nearly $100 million since the start of the school year.

While the money is welcome, many students have been left feeling like they are on the verge of a loss.

The district’s Superintendent, Mary Jo White, said the district is committed to increasing the level of service and student achievement.

“The district has been working hard to address our student achievement issues and to improve our classroom environment, both for students and for teachers,” White said.

“I want to emphasize that the district’s commitment to providing a high-quality education is our highest priority and our priority is always to provide a good learning environment for our students.”

The district also has some major changes under way.

It has moved away from traditional English and French instruction and is expanding English-to-Spanish language instruction.

“We are moving toward using more of a hands-on approach, more of an experiential approach,” White told the local CBS station.

The change in curriculum has been a hit with students, but not everyone agrees.

The head of the teachers union, David Rinaldi, told the Associated Press that the plan to expand English to Spanish language instruction will hurt teachers.

“It’s really not a solution,” Rinaldian said.

“It’s just a way to do it.”

The head of education for the United States, Dr. James Sall, said he’s concerned the plan will create a new divide in the classroom.

“We don’t want to have a classroom where there is this divide between a teacher that is speaking English and a teacher who is speaking French,” he said.

In addition, teachers are concerned about the impact the plan could have on the students.

“If it was English, it would have to be translated into French,” said Elizabeth Breslin, a sixth-grade English teacher at the district.

“But because of the new approach, I think it will be much harder for students to understand what we’re saying.”

Students who need to speak to the principal are told to call the district back office for help, but there’s no direct contact.
