ELMIRA, N.Y. (WETM-TV) – Last week Governor Cuomo announced a collaboration with the Gates Foundation to develop a blueprint to reimagine education in the wake of the COIVD-19 Pandemic. On Thursday, our political commentators shared their thoughts on his plan in this week’s Political Talk.
WELCOME TO POLITICAL TALK WITH TOM SANTULLI AND DORA LELAND.
DUE TO THE ONGOING PANDEMIC, SCHOOL ACROSS THE NATION HAVE GONE TO
DISTANCE LEARNING, RELYING ON COMPUTER TECHNOLOGY AND ONLINE PLATFORMS TO DELIVER INSTRUCTION. IN A PRESS BRIEFING LAST WEEK, GOVERNOR CUOMO ANNOUNCED A NEW INITIATIVE TO “REIMAGINE” EDUCATION AND THAT NEW YORK WOULD PARTNER WITH BILLIONAIRE BILL GATES TO OVERSEE THIS NEW INITIATIVE.
DORA, WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THIS INITIATIVE? WILL BILL GATES BRING THE MUCH-NEEDED CHANGES TO EDUCATION THAT THE GOVERNOR PROMISES?
TOM, BEING A SCHOOL BORAD MEMBER, WHAT IS YOUR OPINION?
THAT’S ALL THE TIME WE HAVE – SEE YOU NEXT THURSDAY FOR POLITICAL TALK.
