Horror Show # 2

The backroom double dealings of Governor Cuomo, Merryl Tisch, Michael Bloomberg and a host a Gates and Broad Foundation cronies bring us a state education system based upon nothing but standardized tests and teaching careers based upon nothing but standardized test scores run through some value-added model with a 12%-35% margin of error.

Why would anybody in their right mind become a teacher in NY State under these conditions?

They can't really think this will improve the state of education, can they?

No, they can't.

This is simply the logical extension of the Bloomberg/Klein Children First reforms that have blown up the system in NYC taken state wide.

We will now have a school system run on FEAR, HUMILIATION, SHAME, and PUNITIVE MEASURES.

Should work out great.


  1. For them, it has worked out great: the entire economy is built upon it, and they are convinced that's what the kids need to be prepped for.

  2. As usual, you are right, Michael - how much will Tisch make from the ed deform battery of tests and reforms when she leaves? Dunno - but you can be sure Bloomberg and Gates will make sure she is taken care of.

  3. Her bro-in-law is CEO of K-12, the nation's largest Ed. services company...THERE'S the payoff...cunt that she is . . .
