Charter school teachers say union is biased against them, 19 May 2009 [cached]
"If the other schools got hit with a $2 billion cut, charter schools could have gotten an increase in funding," said Michael Preskop, regional staff director for NYSUT.
He said the charter school freeze was suggested to bring fairness to the process.
"Although we've always supported charters, we have never been comfortable with the funding mechanism for charter schools," he said.
Preskop and Applied Technologies teachers discussed the issue earlier this month.

NYSUT's western New York regional director, Michael Preskop, told the paper his organization "has never been comfortable with the funding mechanism" for charter schools since it "pits charter schools against other public schools."
Yeah, Mr. Preskop, and your organization sides with those "other public schools" EVERY time against charter schools and the very teachers it purports to represent. It always has. No matter the "funding mechanism," district and charter schools will always be at some level of competition, whether the funding flows through the district, as it currently does, or if it all came directly from the state.
Interestingly, one report I received from the protest was that Mr. Preskop offered to sit and talk with the protesting teachers. But, after making his remarks to reporters, he had a change of heart and went back inside to his office, did not meet with anyone, then eventually departed the premises.
