So what's all the fuss about...is it really about the kids or are public schools under seige by politicians and government officials elected to safeguard them?
Commissioner John B. King, appointed less than 8 months ago stopped SIG funding to several financially struggling school districts earlier this month. Then, Arne Duncan, the top ed dog in the U.S Department of Ed Office threatened to withhold billions in Rttt grants. Now it's the governor of New York threatening to withhold state funds to public school or to reduce their budgets if contract talks are not settled in 30 days on a teacher evaluation system favorable to the state education commissioner and governor.
But what is it that they really want? Many believe it's unfair to pressure NY State Teachers United union to withdraw its successful lawsuit the state education folks are appealing. It's what causing the mess and the kids are caught in the middle of the conflict. And teachers have had enough?
