NY Daily News // August 22, 2012

The United Federation of Teachers is refusing to accept any campaign donations from StudentsFirstNY. The UFT also recently published a report to encourage their supporters not to associate with StudentsFirstNY that incorrectly refers to the organization as a conspiratorial tool in the Mitt Romney campaign.

According to New York Daily News, the UFT does not acknowledge that StudentsFirstNY is pro-student and pro-achievement, but refer to the organization as:

“Fueled by a mix of big corporate money and an education-reform industrial complex run amok, shadowy groups are now pushing policies to punish teachers and take resources away from some students to give to others.”
