Alan Singer recognizes that Governor Andrew Cuomo doesn’t like teachers. In New York as in the rest of the nation, about 75% of teachers are women.

 

New York state has a highly educated teacher corps. 84% of the state’s teachers have master’s degrees, as compared to only 47% nationally.

 

But Cuomo keeps badgering teachers. He has gotten tough with teachers. He assumes that if students have low scores, it is because their teachers are no good. He wants more of them fired, using the test scores of their students to find out which need firing.

 

Singer wonders if Andrew Cuomo has a problem with educated professional women.
