Republican New York State Assemblyman Jim Tedisco has a simple request for Governor Andrew Cuomo:
If the Governor thinks the Holy Grail of education is testing, he should take the 5th grade math and ELA tests and publicly post his results because I don’t think he’s smarter than a 5th grader.
Yes! EVERY politician should have to do this!!!
“Governor, if you’re listening, I’ve got a challenge for you,” Tedisco said on the floor of the New York State Assembly Tuesday. “If you think the Holy Grail of improving our education is Common Core testing, I got a challenge. I want you to sit in the Red Room, I’ll bring in the fifth-grade Common Core math test, the fifth-grade Common Core English test, and then we’ll evaluate what your scores are and we’ll release them to the public. And I believe you won’t prove you’re smarter than a fifth-grader when we’re done.”
Here’s the video:
Over to you, governor.
