DFER's Joe Williams Responds to AQE Press Release
February 25, 2014
By Joe Williams
The Alliance for Quality Education should declare victory in getting Governor Cuomo to increase his support for pre-K before the overzealous advocates ruin what should be a great thing for 4-year-olds statewide with their cynical overreach.
AQE is acting like a teenager who makes the case to his parents for $40 for a new pair of shoes. The parents go out and buy the shoes, and the kid responds: “Thanks for the shoes, now where is my $40?”
If pre-K doesn’t reach needy kids next year because AQE doesn’t know how to accept “yes” for an answer, all the snotty press releases in the world won’t change the fact that they blew it once again by putting policymakers in such an untenable position.
