NYSUT President Karen E. Magee minced no words when talking to reporters about Gov. Andrew Cuomo's vicious assault on public education and the teaching profession.

"He has declared war on the public schools," Magee told The New York Times. "I'll be happy to stand with the teachers, the students and the parents if the governor wants to have a war ... I'm more than confident we will win."

Before the governor even finished delivering his 90-minute speech, the Twitter universe was burning up, under the hashtag #AllKidsNeed.

"If Cuomo cared about what #AllKidsNeed, he would not be raising the stakes on Common Core exams," tweeted one.

Numerous media outlets noted how quickly and vehemently educators struck back via social media to what is considered the worst attack on educators and public schools in the state's modern history.
