.@deBlasioNYC puts @DianeRavitch on his inaugural committee

Again, putting a few pro-traditional public school advocates on his transition team and inaugural committee does not guarantee a pro-traditional public school agenda for his administration, but it surely is a good sign.
He could have put a DFER like Resham Saujani (whom he hired as deputy public advocate) or a Students First figure on these teams.
He chose instead to put friends of traditional public schools there.
A very good sign.
