Press Release: Teachers' Union Generating Parent Confusion to Protect Own Interests

"Parents deserve unbiased, unfiltered information about policies affecting their children, so it's unfortunate that the teachers' union controls the messages that are sent through schools. Governor Cuomo's Opportunity Agenda will benefit children tremendously, but the union would rather generate confusion as a shield to protect its own interests. The Governor's policies would ensure we recruit and retain high performing teachers, that we don't give lifetime jobs to teachers who are not effective, that we can remove low performers from classrooms, and that the interests of students are put first."

-- Tenicka Boyd, StudentsFirstNY Director of Organizing
