Phil Cleary is back teaching preKindergartners in the North Syracuse schools today. Yesterday, he sat next to U.S. Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis and her staffers during a closed meeting with President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden.
“They really wanted to hear our examples of how schools impact the community,” Cleary said. “It was so refreshing to be with people who make the connection between growing the public sector and the good things being done for people every day. They promised to keep fighting for the American Jobs Act. They are not going to give up. They know the jobs are needed and that rehiring teachers, firefighters and police officers is where we need to start,” Cleary said.
