TONIGHT (11/26): Teacher rally and PEP meeting

It's a big night down at Tweed -- the UFT is holding a candlelight vigil at 5:30 p.m. to oppose the Teacher Performance Unit announced last week. Some are saying the vigil is a symbolic event designed to prevent more substantive action, but Chancellor Klein is nervous enough that he sent out a fawning letter explaining the TPU to teachers this afternoon, saying, "Our teachers are heroes, one and all, and I am deeply grateful to them."

Then, at 6 p.m., the Panel for Educational Policy is meeting to vote on the Gifted & Talented proposal. Also on the agenda: progress reports and NAEP results.
