New York trailed behind Maryland ranked No. 1 in education

If only Governor Andrew Cuomo read more education news  instead of accumulating vintage cars or buying 17 year old Broncos for his teenage daughter, his State of the State address yesterday would have sounded a tidbit more enlightening about his plan for education this year. 
New York's public school system cited again behind Maryland that took top ranking in  an annual study that examines education policies and student achievement across all 50 states.
C'mon King Cuomo what public schools need in New York are less competitive grants and a more equitable formula for funding schools not casino gambling in the upstate NY region to promote tourism and the economy.
"For the fifth year in a row, Maryland’s public school system took the top ranking in an annual study that examines state education policies and student achievement across all 50 states and the District according to the Washington Post. Education Week gave Maryland a B-plus in its “Quality Counts 2013” assessment.  Maryland was the only state to earn the grade.  Massachusetts, New York and Virginia trailed immediately behind Maryland, with overall grades of B. These four states maintained the same rankings they held in last year’s report."

"Let’s be honest: we need a lot more well-off, well-educated white folks with a personal stake in both charter schools and education reform in general if we’re going to take reform to the next level, both politically and operationally.Whitney Tilson, hedge fund manager and major funding angel for the school privatizing Democrats for Education Reform, thinks there’s not enough rich, educated white folks.( Preaprez) click photo to his blog.
