bernstj on 2012-07-30I recently attended the New NY Education Commission (Who came up with that name?) meeting in Buffalo. For those of you outside of the Empire State, this commission pretty much summarizes the current state of education reform across the country: the real stakeholders,students, parents and teachers, have little voice in the dialogue. This commission was started by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo because of his misleading and false statement that New York is 38th in educational results. The Commission is stacked with corporate and charter school types, with a few university leaders. No teachers, no students. Randi Weingarten, AFT President, is a member of this commission, but was not in attendance at the Buffalo meeting.
