Who Should Control the Schools?

By July 26, 2009

Follow me on:

Mayor Bloomberg and the state government are in midst of a battle over control of New York City's schools. How much power the mayor and how much oversight are the questions.

In a recent shift, three of the borough presidents -- but not Queens -- now seek to check Bloomberg's control by expanding the power of the Board of Education.

Do you think that Bloomberg has our schools on the right road? Or that power over the nation's largest school system shouldn't reside exclusively in the mayor's office?
