When Will Teachers Union Leaders Stop Trusting Andrew Cuomo?

NYSUT's press release/reaction to Cuomo's veto of the teacher evaluation shield law:

The governor reneged on an agreement. With this veto, the governor has decided that teachers are the only ones who should be held accountable for the state’s failed implementation of the Common Core. We can’t understand why he is refusing to sign his own bill. What has changed? Could it be that the governor is doing the bidding of billionaire hedge fund managers — many of whom, like Paul Tudor Jones, don’t even live in New York state? This governor has to decide whether he’s going to support the goals of students, parents and teachers or those of billionaires who want to destroy public education in order to privatize it and profit from it.”

Meanwhile, educators from across the state — joined by parents, students and community members — will gather outside the Executive Mansion on Eagle Street in downtown Albany beginning at 11:30 a.m. Wednesday to stand together against attacks on public education and teachers, and to call on the governor to listen to all stakeholders before bringing forth another wave of misguided educational policies designed to dismantle public education.

The demonstration coincides with the governor’s annual New Year’s open house and will include an invitation to the governor to attend public forums on public education so that he can hear, unfiltered, the concerns of parents, students and educators about his so-called reforms.

Going forward, there must be no "deals" with Cuomo from teachers union leadership.

It's clear Cuomo's word is worthless.

He reneged on the promises he made to the Working Families Party in return for their ballot nod.

He reneged on his promise to fight for a Democratic State Senate.

He reneged on the teacher evaluation shield bill.

That's three strikes - Cuomo's out.

Do the teachers union leaders understand this?

They're talking a good game for now.

But we'll see if they follow up their words with more actions than just press releases and calls for a demonstration outside the governor's mansion one day before hand.

  1. Unbelievable chutzpah to hear this from the new/old crew at NYSUT: " We can’t understand why he is refusing to sign his own bill. What has changed? Could it be that the governor is doing the bidding of billionaire hedge fund managers — many of whom, like Paul Tudor Jones, don’t even live in New York state? This governor has to decide whether he’s going to support the goals of students, parents and teachers or those of billionaires who want to destroy public education in order to privatize it and profit from it.”

    They "believe" this in the sense that the new language has been focus-group tested in front of a few panels of real teachers who have probably been required to have their heads explode directly in front of a NYSUT staffer for anyone to believe that real teachers hold NYSUT in such contempt and think that doing business with Andrew Cuomo is Satan's work.

    Remember, Cuomo got them all their double pensions. Remember, people for whom reality has been defined for years by "we must keep our seats at the table" don't suddenly throw their chairs onto a symbolic pyre. Remember, this is the crew still run by Randi and Mike.

    The language sounds a little better but that's about all it is, a slight improvement in tone--but hearing "storm the Bastille and first, let's kill all the hedge fund managers" coming from NYSUT requires one to marvel at the theatrics and sheer cynicism of this group of folks who've been selling teachers out, one at a time, for many, many years.
