Suggested Letter to be personalized:
Dear Governor Cuomo,

I’m writing to express my severe displeasure at
Commissioner John B. King, Jr.’s decision to cancel the state sponsored PTA town
hall meetings. As parents, we have legitimate concerns regarding the NYSED’s
educational reform and data sharing policies that are affecting our children.
Commissioner King should have the decency and fortitude to listen to our
concerns and explain his decisions publicly. The shutting down of public
discourse is inexcusable and counter-productive.  I demand the resignation of
the NYS Education Commissioner John King.

The current policies of the
NYSED are threatening our schools and our children’s learning experiences. The
canceling of these important meetings is further evidence of the Commissioner’s
and the NYSED’s lack of transparency and lack of concern for parents’ input.  
Though the Commissioner is not an elected official, he is appointed by people
that are, and as one of my elected officials I am requesting that you listen and
respond to our concerns.
