Teachers union President Michael Mulgrew's skewed observations

A New York Daily News editorial says UFT's President Michael Mulgrew offered an unfair, incomplete picture of the negotiations around teacher evaluations. The editorial noted Mulgrew offered skewed facts about teacher turnover, neglecting to point out that "the teacher attrition rate fell from 15% in 2003 to 8% by mid-2011."

Moreover, NYDN says Mulgrew's claim to have lead the fight for legislative approval on a new teacher evaluation system was "laughable" and that if he continues "this level of intransigence over even the basics" a deal between the City and the UFT by the deadline would be unlikely -- resulting in NYC students losing $300 million in funding.
