So Long John King
As has been reported everywhere, NYSED Commissioner John King is stepping down from his position so that he can accept a job as one of President Obama’s underlings at the US DOE. This seems to be a reward for King for sticking with his reformy plans despite a wave of students, parents, educators, and common sense that opposed virtually every decision he made.
No word on who the next commissioner will be, though you can expect it will be another reformy type who will bring more of the same. It is important to note that the problem here in New York State never was John King. King was merely a mouthpiece for Merryl Tisch and the other plutocrats seeking to profit off of the destruction of public education.
My lasting memory of John King will bewhen he was on the receiving end of this tirade last year…
