  1. Meanwhile Cuomo has declared war on public schools and public school teachers.

    He will “strengthen” teacher evaluations in his second term so that there are “sanctions.”

    He wants to break the “monopoly” public schools have and unfetter the free market (i.e., get rid of the charter cap.)

    It’s going to be an all-out assault on teachers and schools.

    I’m so glad NYSUT leadership is making nice with him, UFT leadership helped engineer the WFP ballot nod and Weingarten made robocalls for his running mate.
