More dissimulation from Eva

From Wikipedia: In 2010, according to Eva Moskowitz, she received around 13,000 applications for 69 teacher positions. In 2011, she said there were "57,000 applications for 256 jobs."  (Sources: Rosato, Ken, host, New York Viewpoint, July 25, 2010; Phillips, Anna M., High Teacher Turnover at a Success Network School, in NYT SchoolBook, October 19, 2011)
Yet from the below email it is clear that of yesterday, her schools are still looking for TFA teachers  even after their years have begun. 
So much for those 57,000 applications, as well as their “extensive” pre-service training programs.  On the Success Charter website, the job postings are four pages long.

Why would anyone be surprised about the nonsense being reported by the charter school advocates? The way they go throught teachers and students is never reported. If they were forced to play by the same rules as the public schools they would not even be discussed.
