Education reform backed by the wealthy - Times Union

Steve McLaughlin's thoughts:

"Often I talk about "secret government," meaning the various commissions and departments in state government that are unaccountable to the legislature.
The article below exposes a two-fer; a bureaucracy within a bureaucracy.
It's worth the read.
Two dozen "fellows", funded by the wealthy, including Merryl Tisch, wife of a billionaire, close friend of Sheldon Silver and Chancellor of the Board of Regents. They are also funded by the Gates foundation, the same Bill Gates group funding Common Core and In Bloom, the data collection end of Common Core....and your kids information is the data they want.....

"Commissioner King's communications director, said the fellows offer unique skills and expertise. "They're like rock stars," he said, adding that without their help "we would be struggling." Apparently he's as out of touch as Cuomo and King are. WE ARE STRUGGLING. The parents, the teachers, and most of all the kids, with the Common Core.

"Carol Burris, named the 2013 Principal of the year by the state School Administrators Association and the National Association of Secondary School Principals, calls the fellows agents of destructive policies. She and other question who they are serving - the Board of Regents, or the wealthy patricians who pay the fellows' salaries."

Many of the fellows have no education experience at all yet they've been heavily "involved in mapping teacher and principal evaluations, redoing student exams and working through the state's implementation of the Common Core standards - reforms that have moved with a speed that many parents and teachers across the state have protested as hasty and harsh."

Who do you think they are answering to? The wealthy elite funding them, or the kids of this state?"

They don't understand how hasty and harsh Cuomo, et al., can be!
Where's the Message of Necessity forcing this travesty down the throats of NY parents, like they did to we firearms owners???
