Cuomo goes to school
Late in his reelection campaign, Cuomo told the Daily News Editorial Board he wanted to break up the "public education monopoly." Two days after cruising to victory, he expanded on his ambitions in an interview with public radio's Susan Arbetter.
"Teacher evaluation. . . . Pay for performance. Focus on the student, don't focus on the bureaucracy," the governor said. "These things are profound changes that 50 years from now will have made a significant difference in the state."
