The PJSTA Endorses Zephyr Teachout
The Port Jefferson Station Teachers Association is very proud to endorse Zephyr Teachout for New York State Governor. Teachout has a clear vision for a public education system that New York’s students, teachers, and communities deserve. Teachout stands in opposition to the privatization measures that have been endorsed by Governor Cuomo and which hurt New York’s students.
Zephyr Teachout calls for full and equal funding of New York’s schools, an end to high-stakes testing, protection of public education against privatization, the empowerment of New York’s local school communities, and the end of the suspension pipeline. All of these positions resonate deeply with the rank and file membership of the PJSTA. We are excited to work with Teachout to bring her vision of public education to New York State so that all New Yorkers can reap the benefits of the best public education system in America.

The achievement gap is getting worse in the middle of Cuomo’s school reform policies because they are knowably not addressing the real obstacles in learning. Poverty is just the beginning but Governor Corrupto and Commissioner King have ravaged classroom autonomy so teachers cannot address need.
