The 2009 candidates aren't talking much about schools — yet

Democratic primary day is sneaking up on the city, but candidates in district and city-wide races have offered little in the way of public pronouncements on the city’s schools.

To remedy this, GothamSchools is blanketing candidates’ inboxes with an education survey, asking candidates for their opinions on matters from how schools in their districts should be improved, to whether Chancellor Joel Klein should keep his job.

But there are dozens of races and even more candidates, so we’re asking our readers for assistance. If you know that a candidate in your district or borough is dodging important questions about the schools or has an interesting background in education, send us an email.
