Is Mulgrew Left Twisting in the Wind With NYSUT/Iannuzzi Move for No Confidence in John King?

Is NYSUT/Iannuzzi a stalking horse for UFT/Mulgrew?
[NYSUT President Iannuzzi] said the NYSUT Board of Directors will meet within the next two weeks, and he feels confident they will approve his request. The resolution will then go before the union’s full representative assembly in April – assuming, Iannuzzi said, that if by that time its call for a three-year moratorium on using Common Core exam results for so-called “high-stakes decisions” on teacher evaluations has not been heeded. -- NYState of Politics

NYSUT has been among the loudest critics of the state's rollout of the tougher standards and has pushed for a three-year moratorium on using student scores on Common Core-aligned for “high stakes” decisions, like teacher evaluations.... Capital NY 
Note how the UFT, the elephant in the room, is left out of the discussion. The press doesn't try to get a comment from Mulgrew or speculate on the implications?

Will the UFT/Unity crowd go along? Of course is the obvious response -- doesn't Unity control NYSUT? Isn't Mulgrew using Iannuzzi as a stalking horse so he doesn't have to take responsibility? Hmmm. Velly interesting. Maybe not.

Something interesting is brewing. Mike Mulgrew has expressed his love man crush for John King and deep affection for Merryl Tish over the years. Remember: Richard Iannuzzi is not from NYC and is not homegrown Unity, though he could not have got elected as president without Unity support. The UFT has always allowed the NYSUT president to come from outside the city -- Iannuzzi is from Long Island - but control many of the mechanisms within NYSUT -- check out the web page for details: - 
but for those who don't, see the end of this piece for the rogues gallery - how many Unity people do you know?

So if Shelly Silver doesn't push the 3-year moratorium on common core, Iannuzzi says he will bring this to the NYSUT Rep Assembly - April 4-6 at the NY Hilton where 800 of our fave Unity slugs get a free junket with meal money. I never go to these but this one might be fun.
