David Steiner out as State Education Commissioner

He’s been in the post just shy of two years, and during his tenure he’s shepherded NY State school’s successful Race to the Top application, reformed teacher and leader evaluation criteria, and implemented a resetting of the Regents tests for grades 3-8.  We at NYCC liked working with the man, even if we didn’t always see eye to eye with him, because he wanted what we want: quality education for all.  Given Governor Cuomo’s education- busting budget, we cannot blame the man for seeking greener pastures elsewhere.
