(Washington Informer) — The Washington Teachers’ Union (WTU) has lashed out at The Washington Post, accusing the newspaper giant of publishing articles that harmed teachers in the District of Columbia Public Schools (DCPS) system. But not only has the Post vilified teachers — many of whom were ensnared in former Chancellor Michelle Rhee’s swift efforts at reform – Jerome Brocks, who will retire in June after a 35-year teaching career with DCPS, said that when the Post realized information it published last year about teachers abusing students was inaccurate, the paper refused to print a retraction. “It came out that there was only one teacher who should not have been with an 18-year-old,” said Brocks, who spoke during an April 15 demonstration that the WTU held at the Post’s headquarters on 15th Street in Northwest.
