By the semester's end we'll have a better understanding of Allen's oeuvre and why he was once run over by a car being pushed by two guys. Your main projects include your participation in weekly discussions and class activities, a blog devoted to our course theme, short response papers, a midterm and final paper, and participating in a group-led discussion. Here is a summary of our work:
The obligatory clip from Sleeper I alway wondered how Albert Shanker ended up being the man who destroyed the 20th century world. The short version is that inthere was a majority black school district set up in Ocean Hill-Brownsville Brooklynand one of their first actions wqas to fire some white teachers for being white, and the American Federation of Teachers AFTShanker's union, went on strike, arguing, IMNSHO correctly, that arbitrary hiring and firing makes unionization is meaningless or impossible.
Conservatives and Republicans have always been opposed to labor unions generally, and teacher unions specifically On Nov. The divisive strike laid bare long simmering tensions within American liberalism over unions, education and race.
Almost a half-century later, the evolution in liberal attitudes that the strike symbolized created vulnerabilities that a very different son of Queens, Donald Trump, exploited in his rise to the presidency. By the late s, after years of frustration with vicious white resistance to school integration, many African-American leaders supported the creation of a black-controlled local school district in the low-income Ocean Hill-Brownsville section of Brooklyn.
The idea was that the district would hire more minority schoolteachers in order to provide role models for students and adopt a curriculum that was culturally affirming.
A hearing by a retired African-American judge hired by the board, Francis Rivers, found that there were no credible charges against the teachers.
The black community will see to that. If an employer — of whatever race — had the right to dismiss unionized employees without due process, why have a union? Settling for community control of segregated schools was wrong, Rustin argued.
Over time, more than 8, paraprofessionals became teachers, providing the largest single source of minority teachers in New York City.
When the third and final strike was settled, the community control effort was gutted. Shanker won among broader public opinion, but lost among liberals.
Many progressives dismissed Shanker, a cerebral former graduate student in philosophy, as a madman, as a well-known joke from the era suggests. In the years since Ocean Hill-Brownsville, many upper-middle class liberals have demonstrated a lukewarm attitude toward unions.
When Democrats held majorities in Congress under presidents Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, the progressive coalition failed to prioritize labor law reforms to give unions a fair shot at surviving. Likewise, those same Democratic administrations largely avoided the fight to support school integration, favoring instead spending more money for high-poverty schools.
And at the federal level, Democrats have largely adopted the view articulated by Bundy and others involved in the Ocean Hill-Brownsville conflict that race could be an explicit factor in hiring decisions. The shifts on unions, school integration and race-conscious decision-making that the teachers strikes symbolized are not unrelated to the disastrous election ina calamity from which progressives only partially recovered in A strong labor movement, an integrated public school system and a legal commitment to equal treatment of individuals by race all help make authoritarian white nationalism less appealing.
But the reduced progressive commitment to these critical bulwarks helped clear the way for a demagogue. This does provide at least a partial explanation of the moral vacuity of the modern education reform, as well as the disastrous abandonment of the labor movement by the modern Democratic Party.
Posted by Matthew Saroff at 6:For three decades, no American filmmaker has been as prolific--or as paradoxical--as Woody Allen. From Play It Again, Sam () through Celebrity () and Sweet and Lowdown (), Allen has produced an average of one film a year, yet in many of these films Allen reveals a progressively skeptical attitude toward both the value of art and the cultural contributions of artists.
I think my feelings on the matter come from the fact that we have Woody Allen, on the one side, laying out a cogent explanation of why the facts don’t support the claim, and Ronan, on the other.
