Grassroots Activists to Governor Cuomo: LIAR!

PolitiChicks.comWith the New York gubernatorial election at hand, education activists  are calling out Governor Andrew Cuomo for his recent campaign ad on education. “Liar!” they say.

Just in time for the election, the pro-Common Core and avid supporter of high stakes testing governor changed his tune in a campaign ad.

Which Candidate Do You Support in the Republican Primaries?

In the ad, Cuomo said that he wants to stop the over testing, but in reality has done nothing to stop the excessive testing.

Cuomo says in the ad that he does not want to use the Common Core test scores for at least five years, and then only if “our” children are ready. However, according to a NY Daily News article from February of 2014, Cuomo struck out in staunch opposition to the New York Board of Regents plan to delay the inclusion of Common Core test scores in student transcripts. The Daily News quoted Cuomo as “seething” in his reaction to the Regents’ plan:

“The Regents’ response is … yet another in a long series of roadblocks to a much needed evaluation system.”

In the ad, Cuomo said, “I still believe the best education equipment is the kitchen table, and the best teacher is the parent,” yet New York State remains one of the most stringent in regulating homeschoolers.

Kathryn Porter is a political watchdog who has served as an elected member of the Colorado GOP State Central Committee and the El Paso County Republican Party Executive Committee. As an illuminator of truth, she was banned as a guest of the 2016 Republican National Convention by then Colorado State Chairman. Following her banishment, she contested the entire 2016 delegation to hold the state party accountable for balloting errors, the disregard of bylaws, and numerous irregularities at the state convention. The 2016 RNC Credentials Committee granted her a convention pass, overruling the former chair's pronouncement. In an RNC report responding to the case she brought before the Committee on Contests, the Colorado Republican Committee was chastized for its "embarassing incompetentence."
