WORCESTER— Considered one of Worcester’s largest labor unions yesterday settled a six-yr contract with the city, ending a 3-12 months dispute that has been simply as bitter as another labor negotiation.
Unfortunately, based on a July 2005 Massachusetts Division of Education report, Worcester doesn’t present students with appropriate particular training providers. The district doesn’t accurately evaluate college students with disabilities, doesn’t develop appropriate educational plans for them, and does not adequately assess their progress. In consequence, they fail the MCAS exams at roughly 3 times the speed of their non-disabled friends.
Also Mr Davis says (and I paraphrase) it takes time to get an airline to an airport. Agreed. However Massport has had legal ownership of the airport for 21 months and did not carry any new comm. jet service to Worc. Then add in that Massport had one hundred% management (long term lease) of the airport for 9 years prior to that and yes, it does develop into slightly obvious that it takes a very long time to get a new comm service to Worc. In fact it takesa long to NOT get a brand new commm carrier to worc.
One of the many traumatising events of the wars.. your analysis and writing as ever are impeccable. Its a terrific tribute to those who fell to dodgy rules and cruel ‘army selections’ that have no groundings in humanity. It appears to be a typical excuse that in the face of conflict something should be excused but as this unhappy story reveals, nothing excuses inhmanity.
James Dempsey, a former columnist on the Telegram & Gazette and at present a professor at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, says there have been repeated employees cuts over the years because the Telegram has adjusted to lower and lower print revenues. However Dempsey, like others in town, says he has a hard time pinpointing how the newspaper has modified.
