Bill Thompson’s education platform, in brief

Thompson unveiled his education platform this morning during a speech at New York University. We’ll have more on it soon, but for now, here’s his top-line wish list, via a press release from his campaign:


BILL THOMPSON’S VISION FOR IMPROVING NEW YORK CITY PUBLIC SCHOOLS

  • Place a renewed focus on early-childhood education
  • Align curriculum with the Common Core and college- and career-readiness
  • Build a class-to-job pipeline with multiple pathways to graduation
  • Reward educators leading innovative, effective ideas, and share those ideas across the school system
  • Train, promote and reward great teachers
  • Demand transparency and accountability
