Connections: Rochester Teacher's Association President Adam Urbanski on the RCSD's proposed cuts

Dec 16, 2019

We continue our series of conversations about the proposed cuts in the Rochester City School District. Last week, former RCSD teacher and current doctoral candidate at the Warner School of Education, Robert Hoggard, told the Connections audience that he thinks it’s time for new leadership in the Rochester Teacher’s Association.

Adam Urbanski was elected president of the RTA in 1981 and has held the position since. Hoggard says Urbanski “has been wielding too much power in the school district and hiding behind organized labor.”

Urbanski joins us in studio today to share his perspective on the proposed cuts and to address the criticism from Hoggard. In studio:
