"After two years of offering students nothing but empty rhetoric, tonight Bill de Blasio didn’t even offer that much. For a mayor who wants permanent control of city schools, it seems odd that Mayor de Blasio did not offer one new education proposal. New York City schoolchildren deserve a mayor who believes their needs are worth focusing on. Mayor de Blasio needs to stop horsing around and focus on getting our kids the quality education they deserve," said StudentsFirstNY Executive Director Jenny Sedlis.
StudentsFirstNY is a grassroots education advocacy organization dedicated to improving public schools throughout New York State.
