Statement on Teachers Union Endorsement of Mayor de Blasio

 

New York, NY – Families for Excellent Schools’ CEO Jeremiah Kittredge released the following statement in response to the United Federation of Teachers’ endorsement of Mayor Bill de Blasio for reelection.
Jeremiah Kittredge, CEO, Families for Excellent Schools:
“Given how Mayor de Blasio has repeatedly used the offices of New York City to support UFT priorities, from putting bad teachers back in classrooms to eliminating independent checks to see if students are actually learning from their teachers, it’s no surprise that the UFT is revving up their political operation in exchange.”
