Is This the Future of NYC’s Charter Schools?

    De Blasio’s administration will mimic Obama’s: i.e., it will be 100% ideology 100% of the time and a totally fact-free zone.

    De Blasio is similar to most leftists. Success of schools outside the conventional public school system is a negative and must be discouraged. These leftists don’t care about “the children.” They care about their power. I hope VM does not think that De Blasio is “well intentioned.” He isn’t.

      Nobody ever holds Dims accountable for their results. People judge Dims by their intentions, which means in the marketplace of ideas, Dims always win.

    The goal, as in the 1960s and most of the 70s, is to bleed to city dry for the benefit of the unions. Will NYC rescue itself again, as started to when it discovered Ed Koch?

    Charter Schools Under Attack…..

    What conceivable reason are charter schools in NYC being
    attacked other than to protect the teacher’s union?

    Many of us have followed the plight of NYC Charter
    Schools. They are under a vicious attack
    with the intention of eliminating them entirely. How, buy kicking them out of school buildings
    they currently share, reversing Bloomberg era decisions to place new ones, take
    away a quarter of a billion of capital funds dedicated to them and any other
    way Mayor DeBlasio and his band of merry men and women who have just taken
    office can conjure up.

    These charter schools have improved children’s lives,
    provided an education most were not receiving in the NYC public school system
    and encouraged them to become outstanding members of the community.

    I defy anyone to provide a logical and realistic reason as
    to why the mayor and his friends are taking this position other than to please
    the teacher’s union. Why? There simply isn’t any other reason.
