Dumbest Video Ever?

New York State United Teachers
(NYSUT), the statewide teachers’ union, created a pleasant-sounding dummy group called the Alliance for Quality Education (AQE) a few months back to protest Governor Cuomo’s budget modifications.  NYSUT kicked off the project with $425,000,  a drop in the bucket for a public employee union.

AQE began its campaign by offering free I Pads to students who submitted the best videos slamming Governor Cuomo for his cuts. It would be the students criticizing the Governor, not the union members, get it?

Today, NYSUT/AQE released the finalists in their video contest.  I find them almost unwatchable.  The one above, entitled “Cuomo’s Reign of Terror,” will give you some idea.  Warning: watching it made me want to tear my eyes out.

If this really is a ruse to increase funding for high school film classes, NYSUT is much smarter than I thought.

P.S. Shake it off, kid.  I hope you won the IPad.
