That ad - which they spent $1.4 million on, btw - functions as a pro-Cuomo ad, talking about the governor's Common Core Task Force and making it sound like Cuomo is doing the right thing on education.
The truth is, he's not.
Test scores are STILL part of APPR teacher evaluations, either local tests or the Regents exams.
The governor himself said it.
So the claim in the ad that Cuomo's doing right is, well, wrong.
The public education system remains as test-centric as ever, nothing's changed post-Cuomo CCSS Task Force.
But you wouldn't know that from this ad.
A while back I blogged how Cuomo's talking up community schools and sounding like Mulgrew in the bargain, coupled with the UFT's refusal to have Cuomo's odious 2015 education law thrown in the garbage where it belongs, was a sign that the UFT and Cuomo had a backroom deal going.
This ad is further confirmation of it - your dues money going to run an ad that helps out Cuomo politically.
