"Rubber Rooms" In New York City


Antonucci links to a great if horrifying article in the Village Voice
about 662 New York City teachers who are in administrative limbo and go
each day to one of 13 "administrative reassignment" centers (aka "rubber
rooms") pending the disposition of their cases -- and suggests that
their forced inactivity could be the making of a great reality show (Rubber Rooms Could Be a Gold Mine).  From what I read, the Voice piece (Class Dismissed) sounds more like a nightmarish episode of Big Brother than American Idol.  Not that I ever watch those shows.  Anyone know how many of these we have in CPS, or what they're like?
