DTU union head Terrie Brady’s silence is deafening!
Terrie Brady is the long time head of the union. Her strangle hold on the position is legendary. Something else is getting quite the attention too and that is her silence.
Over the Christmas break I had lunch with Times Union reporter Denise Amos who in my opinion after years of poor reporting is doing some nice work. One of the questions she asked me was about Terry Brady, telling me she won’t return my calls or talk to me.
I kind of shrugged my shoulders and didn’t think much of it until this morning when I got the following e-mail from First Coast Connect’s Melissa Ross, I had sent her a piece about Rick Scott’s appointments to the state board of education.
Thanks Chris. You know it would be helpful if Terrie Brady would return phone calls and comment on this stuff…. Do you have a relationship with her?
So it seems Mrs. Brady is imposing a news blackout.
Look friends there are a lot of things she should be out there beating a drum about, substandard charters, common core, discipline and the list goes on and on and when she says “nah I can’t be bothered”, it hurts teachers.
