Is Andrew Cuomo for real?

Gov. Andrew Cuomo sent a letter to Board of Regents to review the public school model in St. Lawrence Massachusetts for experimenting with this model in NYS.
Jim Malatras, his director of state operations wrote the letter. Next time ask an educator to write the rational because the data to support what Cuomo has in mind doesn't justify what he is asking in a receivership model. Cuomo aught to have a cadre of educational advisors Malatras is far from one. He may have credentials in political science but not in education.
With the data Malatras presented it would seem the whole state should be under a receivership which is far from the truth in a state among the pack leading in the nation on overall graduation rates.
