“The state’s top education officials on Wednesday recommended a series of sweeping reforms — including more charter schools for New York City — that quickly drew a rebuke from the teachers union.
Under state law, no more than 460 charters can operate throughout the state.
But New York City, where 231 of the schools are open or authorized, is allowed only up to 256. So despite lengthy waiting lists, charter doors will not add students after another 25 schools are licensed.”
