NYC’s Charter Schools: Mayor de Blasio putting Politics before Poor Kids (VIDEO)

Got school choice 333

From Fox News:

“…New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio last week stopped three charter schools from co-locating with district public schools, leaving some children with no option but their district schools.

The three charter schools no longer approved for co-locations belong to the Success Academy network, run by Eva Moskowitz, de Blasio’s political rival. In New York City, Success Academy ranks in the top 1 percent for math and top 7 percent for English, according to its website.

Along with Obamacare, “school choice” is one of those areas where folks from both sides of the aisle can come together. Personally, I think there are more of these than initially meets the eye.

And for an update on this battle, check out the excellent video from ReasonTV below. This is FAR from over:

  1. Can’t have anything that makes public schools look bad, now can we?

    What we REALLY can’t have is ANY school that doesn’t march in lockstep with the indoctrination policies of the NEA. De Blasio had a great role model for his actions with the closing of the DC area charter schools.

    Your child WILL go to OUR schools, and we WILL jam a Common Core Education into your child’s brain!

    Poor NYC! It went from bad to worse!

  4. I really hope each of those parents stick to their guns and keep up the fight.
