Opinion: Mike Bloomberg Leaves Important Education Reform Legacy

Under Mayor Mike Bloomberg’s leadership, NYC has greatly expanded school choice options for New York families, raised graduation rates, and now has some of the best charter schools in the country.

In an opinion piece on U.S. News, President and CEO of the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools Nina Rees argues NYC’s next mayor has a lot to live up to on education reform:

Whoever replaces Bloomberg will soon realize that his legacy of data driven decision making and accountability for student achievement is now embedded in the fabric of every school around the city. And that the national discussion around school reform has been elevated thanks to a leader who has not only introduced but implemented rigorous reforms.
