State Budget Update

As noted last week, both the Assembly and the Senate have separated the Governor’s education deform proposals from their budgets. While this is great news, the Senate has introduced a separate resolution which gives Cuomo what he wants.

This is why we cannot let up. As former SWR Superintendent William Cala posted on Facebook, (incorporating a quotation from Malcom X) “ANY compromise with the 50-35-15 APPR system is a complete and total loss for teachers, children and public education . . . A compromise is capitulation to further damage. ‘You stick a knife in 9 inches, then pull it out 6 inches and call it progress.'”
