New York City mayor-elect Bill de Blasio criticized charter schools during his campaign. Parents of 70,000 charter students are concerned about the future of charter schools.
In an opinion piece for the Wall Street Journal, Daniel Henninger discusses the future state of New York education, specifically charter schools:
The assault on charters (and school vouchers or tax credits for Catholic schools) is not about the kids' education. It's wholly about public-union arithmetic: More members means more union dues means more political power. New York teachers union chief Michael Mulgrew wants those 5,000 charter teachers sending dues to him.
