Despite the efforts of the United Federation of Teachers (UFT) to encourage politicians to shun StudentsFirstNY, its parent organization, the New York State United Teachers, has endorsed Jeff Klein. Klein, a Bronx senator, ironically accepted recent donations from StudentsFirstNY.
According to the New York Daily News, this should be a lesson for the UFT:
If Democrats are to win back the Senate in November, they’ll need the support of Klein and his allies. The New York State United Teachers understand that and gave him its endorsement.
