In New York State, a small group of Democrats in the State Senate flipped their allegiance to the Republicans, giving Republicans control of the Senate. Republican control of the Senate worked to the benefit of the 1%.
One of that group was State Senator Jeffrey Klein. He just won the endorsement of the New York State United Teachers.
This is bizarre. According to this blogger, Perdido Street School, Klein is pro-voucher and pro-charter. He supports evaluating educators by test scores.
Can anyone associated with NYSUT explain this endorsement?
