Bronx Lab School teacher and GothamSchools Community section contributer Stephen Lazar is one of the organizers of the initiative, which they've dubbed the #EDUSolidarity project.

In his post today, Lazar explains that union protections prevent great teachers from losing their jobs for arbitrary reasons. But it's more than that, he writes:
...
Lazar isn't the only city teacher speaking out today: Miss Eyre, Lynne Winderbaum, Mr. A Talk and a numberofteachers at EdWize are just a few of those who've already posted their essays.

...
I also heard today from Community contributor Stephen Lazar about an effort he's helping spearhead for teachers across the country to blog on Tuesday about why they support their unions. His post will appear on GothamSchools.
...
Lazar says his school, Bronx Lab, works hard to develop new teachers, so when they leave, the school loses its investment and must start afresh. The phenomenon is not unique to Bronx Lab, but it is severe there, he writes:
...
It's the first day back from break, but Stephen Lazar's mind isn't on his global history students.
Instead, Lazar is worrying about which five teachers at his school, Bronx Lab School, are on the city's school-by-school list of potential layoffs. He can count seven colleagues new enough to be on the chopping block.
In the GothamSchools Community section, Lazar writes in a letter to Mayor Bloomberg about the effect of layoff lists on teachers.
...
Read Ruben Brosbe on the little-known phenomenon of teacher backsliding; Lizzie Hetzer on the mixed emotions brought on by moving to a more teacher-friendly school; Dana Lawit on the symbolism of fresh pencils; and Stephen Lazar on his hopes and fears for the new year.
