Yesterday Governor Cuomo shared how he believed that “failing schools” (failing based on his rigged tests) should receive the death penalty.
Today NYSUT President Dick Ianuzzi responded with this tweet…
Sad Cuomo uses “death penalty” when speaking about schools. Especially insensitive on Labor Day weekend and as school year starts Shameful.

But perhaps the best response of all came, not surprisingly, from Reality-Based Educator on the Perdido Street School Blog. Please read the entire post. It’s worth it. But the highlight is right here…
But Cuomo has ratcheted up the level of animosity and hostility here by using such inflammatory language.
It is high time we return the favor.
If Governor Cuomo thinks it is time some schools be given the “death penalty” for struggles that are often beyond their means to fix, then it is time for teachers of all political ideologies to get together and help pull the plug on the 2014 Cuomo re-election plan and the Cuomo 2016 presidential plan.
Andrew Cuomo is a thug and a bully and a crook, that we’ve known for a while.
Now, after the “death penalty for schools” statement, he is also a war criminal against public schools.
It is time to put an end to his Reign of Terror.
