New York Teacher Union Officials Kids Pay

The New York Board of Regents, which sets education policy in the Empire State, is eliminating a literacy exam for new teachers, claiming the test is “flawed.” The Board, which is composed of teacher union officials and their hand-picked representatives have paved the way for more dues-paying members to become teachers, regardless of their ability to teach effectively.

Teachers’ unions are cheering the news that New York state education officials have killed off a literacy test which successfully revealed that almost a third of candidate teachers cannot meet eight-grade standards.

Members of the New York state Board of Regents voted on Monday to eliminate the literacy exam which revealed the prospective teachers’ poor reading and writing skills, saying the controversial test is “flawed” and that it puts Latino and African-American teacher applicants at an unfair disadvantage.
