    The article is a response from a teacher who has been nominated teacher of the year several times.. I agree with him on so many points but he states he's opomistic about the future of education in ny. I on the other hand am not. I am scared for our children and for our society with how education is being handled and how politicians wants to handle it

    I'm glad I don't teach in NY, and I fear for future generations of NY children.

    It's really interesting to me that Cuomo was elected. The tea party sweep of governors came in following Obama's election and we expected them to target teachers and public education, but Cuomo is supposedly a progressive.

    So sorry for NY teachers and students.

    New York will generally elect anyone with a D by their name... even a DINO, corporatist stooge like Cuomo.

    Judging from the political ads and the bit of research I did (because of being bombarded with all of the ads), he was a much much better candidate than his R opponent - who honestly just seemed slimy from even his own ads.

    Cuomo is bad but Astorino would have been worse. We got a raw deal last year, unfortunately.

    As a new teacher, this resonates with me in a major way. I just wish there was something I could do about it.

    It's almost like people of both political persuasions see a problem in public education.

    Weird.

    He stinks. But it's not just NY.
