Voters are giving Mayor de Blasio a bad report card for his education policies.
A Quinnipiac poll released Wednesday found that just 38% support de Blasio’s handling of the public schools and 49% disapprove.
40% want de Blasio to increase the number of charter schools while 39% want the number to stay the same and 14% want a reduction in the schools.
Do you know why that poll is suspect?
Because it came at the same time this was going on:
A pro-charter school group has spent $3.6 million over the past three weeks on TV ads attacking Mayor de Blasio, an insider revealed Wednesday.
Families for Excellent Schools — founded by a deep-pocketed group of financiers — has run a series of ads, including a spot blaming de Blasio for taking away the “hopes and dreams” of 194 students by blocking Success Academy Harlem Central.
