Statement from Speaker Silver
Regarding State Education Commissioner David Steiner

David Steiner has been a terrific leader as New York's Education Commissioner and is a true visionary who has helped lead the state in implementing critical reforms, including guiding New York's successful Race to the Top application last year and spearheading a vast array of other important initiatives. I am confident that he will continue to play a critically important role in improving America's public schools in whatever path he chooses.
