United Federation of Teachers officials meet with Cuomo aides

Written By kom nampuldu on Selasa, 10 Februari 2015 | 18.18

Leaders of New York's teachers unions huddled with Gov. Cuomo's aides just days after launching a hard-hitting media and grass-roots campaign opposing his education reforms.

United Federation of Teachers President Mike Mulgrew and his state counterpart, Karen Magee of New York State United Teachers, met with the aides in Albany last Friday. Cuomo did not attend.

The union leaders said the talks were not unusual and insisted they were not pulling back on their TV ads and social-media outreach attacking the governor's proposals to strengthen teacher evaluations, streamline disciplinary hearings and expand charter schools.

"We talk to elected officials all the time," said UFT spokeswoman Alison Gendar. "We . . . are engaged in the largest grass-roots campaign in recent memory to empower teachers and to protect our students."

NYSUT rep Carl Korn added its campaign is "accelerating."

Cuomo's office declined to comment.

The unions oppose the governor's plan to have student results on state standardized exams account for half of a teacher's job rating, up from 20 percent.

But Cuomo said the teacher evaluations are too lax and inflated, with only 1 percent of instructors rated ineffective while a majority of students flunk math and English standards.
