Heastie on Friday reiterated the Assembly’s reticence to support lifting the cap on charter schools, which Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan has linked to an extension of mayoral control in New York City.
“For the most part, the Assembly conference are not big supporters of charter schools,” Heastie said. “Charters are something Senate Republicans like to support. They never want them in their district.”
Indeed, John Flanagan loves charters - and charter school money.
How many charter schools are there on Long Island, where Flanagan is from?
Flanagan and his fellow Senate Republicans from Long Island sure do love their charters - just not in their own districts.
