RTA/NYSUT Pull Endorsement Of Morelle

NYSUT ends support based on RTA's recommendations related to Morelle's support of mayoral control of Rochester City Schools.

"You can't have a piece of legislation that has a profound effect not only on teachers, parents, students, but the community at large without asking, at least asking them what they think about it. And if we can work together we all would have worked together to try to do something. What he tried to do, he tried to do something to teachers and not with teachers – that's wrong." ~~ John Pavone of the Rochester Teachers Assn.

"When you make a decision that you are going to guard the status quo, a decision that you are okay with 46 percent graduation rate, then we are going to have to part company. I believe our children can do much better."  ~~ Joe Morelle

Caution to Democrat "leaders" You reap what you sow. The republicans have exploited corporate democrats indifference to working folks in the NYS leg.

They are going to do it again.

Watch the Rochester teachers union support Joe Roe-bucks over Robin Witt.

Anyone care to bet.

To 10:18AM ~~ I suspect you are correct. Joe has a lot to hide and a lot to lose. He'll do as told by his "supporters" so he's not threatening to them.
