NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Just weeks after moving to prevent their expansion, Mayor Bill de Blasio has offered an olive branch to the charter school movement.
“We made some decisions in the last weeks striving for fairness. But I have to tell you, I didn’t measure up when it came to explaining those decisions to the people of this city. So let me start to right the ship now,” said de Blasio. “Our mission is to create a city in which, regardless of zip code, your neighborhood public school is a great option for your child.”
