IFT Pulls Out Of New Teacher Project Project

Thanks to the reader who sent me a copy of this letter from the IFT to the New Teacher Project about its decision to pull out of an advisory panel process. I don't know any of the context here -- please fill us in if you know -- but TNTP (formerly headed by Michelle Rhee) did go public last spring to report on the millions being spent in New York City to pay teachers who'd been removed from their classrooms -- and assigned into so-called rubber rooms. So maybe this is some sort of payback for the bad press that the UFT and AFT got as a result of that. I don't know.
