June 4, 2019 – “Treasure Island” By Michael Sullivan & PAR Attack With Teacher Brian Crowell

WorkWeek hears about the new San Francico Mime Troupe play Treasure Island in an interview with writer and actor Michael Sullivan. The play which opens on July 4th at SF Dolores Park looks at the corruption and greed around the condo developments on Treasure Island. The Mime Troupe theater are also represented by Actors Equity.
Next, WorkWeek investigates the Peer Assisted Review PAR program in Berkeley, San Francisco and Los Angeles. We interview former Berkeley Federation of Teachers steward Brian Crowell. He discusses how the program was being used to target senior teachers, African American and Latino teachers. When he began to investigate the program and defend teachers he discovered that his union president was being paid to help target and terminate teachers. He was also put in the program in retaliation.
