60% Of NYers Want Mayor To Share Control Of Schools

From the latest Quinnipiac poll:

The next mayor should share control of public schools with an independent board, 60 percent of voters say, while 17 percent say the next mayor should keep total control of public schools.

 Voters say 41 – 16 percent that they are less likely rather than more likely to vote for a mayoral candidate who supports continuing mayoral control of the schools.

 60% want autocratic mayoral control ended.

That's a pretty big number.

Unfortunately for us, the UFT leadership are part of the 17% who say the mayor should keep sole control of the school system.

  1. What an incredibly useless bunch of hacks ya'll are paying good dues to. how in hell does a union support being punked by a mayor who treats its members like dirt? I am so psyched about the chances of MORE sending these do nothings back to the chalkboard.
