Last Friday the PJSTA issued an official endorsement of Zephyr Teachout, who will square off against Andrew Cuomo in the gubernatorial Democratic primary on September 9th. Teachout, considered the underdog to the Wall Street backed Cuomo, has gained significant momentum over the past few weeks. In spite of her virtually ideal education platform, NYSUT has chosen not to endorse her in the coming primary. That has not stopped educators from across the state from throwing their support behind her, however. Local education leaders have begun to sign a letter of support for Teachout.
