The NY1 report allowed the pols to duck the important issue of the loss of federal education funds and the teacher evaluation conflict, while protecting their hope of getting the union's campaign endorsement and support.  Elected Officials Criticize Bloomberg's Approach To Education In State Of The City Speech (NY1)
