In the interview, Mr. Cuomo cited Catholic schools closing “all over the place,” and said the opposition to the legislation was being driven by teachers’ unions.“They don’t want the competition of these schools where they don’t represent the members,” Mr. Cuomo said, adding: “There’s no principle here. There’s no argument.”He said that Assembly members opposed to the proposal were upstate members being pressured by the statewide teachers’ union, New York State United Teachers, as well as “the predictable sort of Manhattan liberals” concerned about the separation of church and state.
The biggest competition to Catholic schools these days is not the public schools - it's charter schools.
You want to help Catholic schools, governor?
Stop shilling for the charters.
