New York Governor Andrew Cuomo joined a rally in Albany organized by charter school parents and students who are upset about New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s recent moves against charters. Last week de Blasio announced that he would prevent three Success Academy charter schools from using space in traditional school buildings. As reported in the New York Times, Cuomo promised to ensure that charter schools have the “financial capacity and physical space and government support to thrive and to grow.”
Another article in the New York Times looks at the antagonism between Mayor de Blasio and Eva Moskowitz, the founder of Success Academy Charter Schools.
