Commissioner King Speaks

April 30, 2012 Leave a comment

Finally, he’s gone on record explaining his position on why even chronically-absent students should be counted on Buffalo teachers’ evaluations. You can find the article here.

I genuinely like Dr. King. He is sincere and in this for the kinds.

But he’s being bossed around by Governor Cuomo.

This is why the commissioner broke his silence today. It’s a coordinated effort from the governor’s office to ram through his vision of union-free education.

Cuomo’s Education Commission

April 30, 2012 Leave a comment

The commission, announced earlier today, is described here.

This announcement is timed right after Pineapplegate, and gives the governor the opportunity to implement an end run around his loss in the teacher evaluation lawsuit to NYSUT.

First, he withheld funding. Now, he’s implementing an aggressive strategy to undermine public education funding in New York.

The commission is going to find that education dollars are wasted.

The commission is going to find that ineffective teaches are protected.

The commission will recommend remedies that make Wisconsin’s and New Jersey’s attacks on teacher unions look meek and mild.

This is the next step in union busting.
