NYSUT Statement on John King's Appointment as Acting U.S. Secretary of Education
Source: NYSUT Media Relations
"New York State United Teachers is disappointed in John King's appointment as acting U.S. Secretary of Education. NYSUT has always considered John King an ideologue with whom we disagreed sharply on many issues during his tenure as the state's Education Department commissioner. Just last year, our members delivered a vote of no confidence against him and called for his resignation. NYSUT urges its members to call the White House switchboard at 202-456-1414 - as well as a special White House telephone line dedicated to public comments at 202-456-1111 - to express their displeasure in John King's appointment."
For anyone who has forgotten about John King, some basic information is in this video where Port Jefferson Station Teachers Association/Stronger Together Leader Beth Dimino blasts him at a town hall meeting.
As for UFT reaction to King's appointment, has anyone heard anything?
