‘Life in The Rubber Room’
This is a quick note to let you know that our latest story will be broadcast this weekend on This American Life. Check their website for schedule and details: http://www.thislife.org
Life in The Rubber Room
The true story of little-known rooms in New York City Board of Education buildings. Teachers are told to report there instead of their classrooms. No reason is usually given. When they arrive, they find they’ve been put on some kind of probationary status, and they must show up every day until the matter is cleared up. Teachers continue to receive their salaries, but it can take months, sometimes years, until they are either returned to the classroom or fired. So every day the teachers report to the “Rubber Room”… to wait.
