State Comptroller Tom DiNapoli addresses NYSUT Representative Assembly

New York State Comptroller Tom DiNapoli spoke before a raucous crowd at NYSUT’s 51st Representative Assembly, delivering the message that the state retirement system, teacher retirement system, and New York City pension plans are the strongest and best run in the nation.

DiNapoli highlighted the hard work of NYSUT members throughout the pandemic, saying that those gathered in the hall are the lifeblood of our education system and that NYSUT is the strongest and best union of education professionals in the country.

The state comptroller also stated that charter schools must have the same level of accountability as any other school receiving public funding.

In closing, DiNapoli thanked outgoing NYSUT president Andy Pallotta for his service, calling him a tireless advocate for teachers, students and public education.
