Rumor – Governor Cuomo: Pearson Bought Your Cheap Soul

March 16, 2015


Hi Gov!

Have you sat in a teachers’ work room recently? (Some schools still have one.) How about the DSC03525-Bteachers’ cafeteria? The rumors are flying east, west, north and south. Is it true that Pearson (among others) bought your soul? Your conscience? Your love of poor kids?

We now know who bought you your second term!

You certainly have been beating up on teachers since your re-election. Why? Teachers and their union solidly supported you. Of course, teachers can’t match the Pearson ton of gold, or 2 million from Hedge Funds, or one million from Glenwood. How many votes did you get from these one percenters?

stick-boy-and-girlTeachers, those sorry under-paid, over-worked slobs who you are chocking to death, were worth four or five hundred thousand votes all over New York State. A pity you don’t need their votes again.

You played – like all dirty politicians – the game very well. Here are some facts for you:

  1. The United States – the world super power – has one of the lowest standards of education in the world – thanks to ego-maniac politicians like you.
  2. booksWhen you make teacher tenure/effectiveness contingent upon the number of passing students, you end up with grade-fixing. Principals and APs do not want their schools to “look bad” so they help their teachers to fix the grades. I know. Been there, done that!
  3. The students are the forgotten people. Stop the money, kick the teachers desksaround, and who is really concerned about the welfare of the kids, their education, their future? Teachers are their best hope!
  4. Hey Gov! Doesn’t it bother you that charter schools actively select the students they accept in their ivory towers? They must have a GPA of 80%? 2013-01-28_09-16-34_256What is the fate of the special needs kids? Immigrant kids? Minority Kids?
  5. You kill public education Mr. Gov. and you kill America – land of opportunity. (To be continued.)

Your present attitude to teachers and your policies in education are shocking, but inconsequential to teachers because the people you are hurting are the children in our public schools – they are our future.

Your second term is showing your true colours. Happy to report I did not vote for you!
