The UFT placed a full-page ad in the May 24 issue of the Daily News as part of the union’s ongoing effort to set the record straight on charter school reform and counter the falsehoods being spread by the “blame the teacher” crowd and the Wall Street hedge funds behind them. The ad states, “We’re for schools that serve all students, regardless of their needs, that give parents a real voice, that benefit kids rather than profiteering investors.”
