Suspensions can't be factored in as absences in any evaluation plans because it's impermissible in state education law.
Unfortunately, attendance teachers were not represented in the Buffalo Teachers Federation delegate council meeting on Tuesday and at all meetings since September.
The BTF leadership have not supported these teachers to organize themselves to elect a delegate chair.
And when an attendance teacher told BTF President Phil Rumore more could have been done to employ the laid off teachers in other job openings in the district instead of suffering for six-years after they were recalled in September 2011, Rumore responded by abruptly standing up from his chair at this meeting scheduled in his office on February 15, 2012.
When asked why he ended the meeting, Rumore answered because "accusations were being made about the BTF."
One of the teachers upset with the behavior and reaction of the union president responded by telling Rumore if he is unable to listen to teachers concerns, he should consider retiring again look for another job.
