NYC Teacher Rachel Maniscalco Publicly Resigns From the UFT

by Michael Kane

8-27-21

Rachel Maniscalco is an NYC public school teacher who publicly resigned from the United Federation of Teachers (UFT) at our 8-25-21 protest immediately after I announced I was leaving the UFT as well. We did NOT resign from teaching, but we both announced we are leaving an organization that no longer represents us or our fundamental rights. I predict 3,000 NYC teachers will be following us in the next 2 weeks. If the UFT and NYC bring back the COVID testing option in lieu of vaccination, I predict that number will be half as much. Regardless, Rachel and I are GONE!

This video from the Associated Press may make Maniscalco a legend, as the power of hearing her resign while holding her baby girl in a papoose on her belly is quite simply bone chilling (this was her baby girl’s second protest):
