Gov. Cuomo educational vision...

“I think the inequity in education is probably the civil rights issue of our time. There are two education systems in this state. Not public private. One for the rich and one for the poor and they are both public systems.
The way we fund education through the property tax system, by definition is going to be unfair. And it is. The state is sup- posed to equalize or come close to equal- izing with its funding. That’s the CFE law- suit that the state is yet to fully fund.” 

Instead of following up to equalize educational opportunities for poor children in public schools, under  Gov. Andrew Cuomo, the state is yet to fully fund CFE law-suit.

What Cuomo attempts to propose is to place public schools under a czar and receivership. Why?

"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.
