Mayoral Control = More Accountability

By Tenicka Boyd, StudentsFirstNY Senior Director of Organizing

My New York State Senate Mayoral Control Hearings Testimony

Good afternoon. My name is Tenicka Boyd and I am the Senior Director of Organizing for StudentsFirstNY and a New York City public school parent in Brooklyn.

First off, I want thank you for giving me the opportunity to testify about mayoral control.

My bottom line is: Mayor de Blasio wants control of the schools without any of the scrutiny. New York City public schools are not good enough and the Mayor must be held accountable. You have a copy of my testimony, but I wanted to summarize it and then give you some insight into the parent experience.

Read the full testimony on Medium.
