Investigation of Greenwich Public Schools administrative procedures and practices is long overdue. Substitute teachers, in particular, are often treated like expendable non-entities by teachers and administrators. They are rarely afforded the respect their role merits. Those that accept special-ed assignments are frequently jerked around by para-professionals and sped teachers that provide inaccurate and/or incomplete instructions. Ultimately, the sub that tries his best to make sense out of this convoluted protocol will be faulted for failure to
follow instructions and summarily removed from SubFinder for future assignments. The sub soon discovers that since he is not considered a Town employee and is not represented by the teacher's union, he has no recourse or rights to seek redress. The system is immune to ameliorative intervention and subs continue to get the short end of the stick. Investigative reporters should
open this can of worms and reveal this reality. We should not tolerate this vestige of feudalism to victimize dedicated substitute teachers any longer.
