New Yorkers who weren’t able to attend any of the Assembly’s five public hearings on mayoral control can now find out just what they missed. (That is, if GothamSchools’ coverage wasn’t enough for them.) Assemblywoman Catherine Nolan, who chairs the education committee, is making transcripts of the hearings available on her Web site.
Transcripts from the Staten Island, Manhattan, and Queens hearings are online now. But beware: The PDF files are enormous. The Queens hearing is 419 pages, and the transcript of the Manhattan hearing runs to 554 pages!
