Get Ready For Another NYSED Commissioner King Speech

Last time he gave a big speech, he compared the Common Core to the Civil Rights Movement.

This time, given the venue for the speech, we'll hear more about how his education reform agenda is indispensable for making New York State into an economic powerhouse in the 21st Century economy:

Also at noon, state Education Commissioner John King delivers remarks at a luncheon hosted by the Manhattan Institute for Policy Research, Harvard Club, 35 West 44th St., Manhattan.

King has the support of very few parents or teachers in this state, but he continues to have the support of the hedge fundies and corporate types who donate to the politicians.

Thus he's still around to make these inane speeches.
