During a recent closed-door meeting, UFT President Michael Mulgrew showed his true colors and declared "war" on education reform and charter schools.
According to the New York Post, UFT President Michael Mulgrew declared "war" on education reformers at a Wednesday-night meeting with union delegates. Among the remarks, Mulgrew stated:
“Their ideas will absolutely destroy — forget about public education — they will destroy education in our country.”
Many education reform leaders are outraged by Mulgrew's comments. StudentsFirstNY's Executive Director, Jenny Sedlis, stated:
Mulgrew saw the teachers contract as an opportunity to settle scores rather than as a tool to improve schools for kids."
