Michael Mulgrew, president of New York City's teachers union, on Monday weighed in on a proposal by Mayor Michael Bloomberg to offer loan forgiveness as a benefit for new teachers. Such a program would require negotiation with the union, and should be used to retain experienced teachers as well, Mulgrew wrote in a letter to Schools Chancellor Dennis M. Walcott. "The point of such a program is not just to bring in recruits -- it is to bring in candidates who will learn the craft of teaching and build a successful career in our schools," he wrote.
Could loan forgiveness be used to retain experienced NYC teachers?
