STATEMENT FROM MAYOR BLOOMBERG ON RATIFICATION OF UNITED FEDERATION OF TEACHERS CONTRACT
"The ratification of this contract will bring much-needed stability to our schools over the next three years. We're giving teachers the fair compensation and raise they deserve while recognizing their efforts in the historic push to reform our schools and bring accountability back to the education system. Every child deserves a world-class education and teachers are our strongest partners. I look forward to the next three years and continuing to strengthen our City schools."
