“Mayor Bill de Blasio today will hold yet another carefully choreographed event designed to obscure the real state of New York City schools. It’s unclear if attendees at tonight’s town hall will be able to ask the mayor questions he deems to be “off topic,” but you can count on de Blasio filling time with a lot of flowery rhetoric and happy talk.
Time and time again, de Blasio has chosen to gloss over the reality of what’s happening in failing schools rather than deal with it directly. This tactic might please the mayor’s political allies in the teachers union, but it comes at the expense of the kids who are being failed by a broken education system in need of fundamental reform.”
