I reported yesterday that Learn NY is trying to change the conversation on mayoral control. Here’s how Julie Wood, the group’s spokeswoman, put it:
“If this is a referendum on Joel Klein, that doesn’t serve the interests of the school system,” she said. “We think that it’s about more than that.”
There are a few good opportunities coming up to ask substantive questions about school governance. There’s the first public hearing by Assembylwoman Cathy Nolan, in Queens. And next week, I am moderating a panel in Queens on mayoral control. What testimony do you plan to share with the Assembly? What questions should I ask the panelists?
