StudentsFirstNY Statement on United Federation of Teachers Charter Schools Announcement

"There is already a mechanism in place to hold charter schools accountable; Mike Mulgrew should know this better than anyone because his was closed. Mike Mulgrew calling for more accountability for charter schools is like the Pony Express demanding faster service from FedEx. Our children deserve more high quality school choices, not more political posturing from union bosses. For Mulgrew to say this is his top priority is a joke -- his top priority should be improving the district schools that he runs," said StudentsFirstNY Executive Director Jenny Sedlis.


StudentsFirstNY is a grassroots education advocacy organization dedicated to improving public schools throughout New York State.
