Controller Scott Stringer said he wants to audit charter schools — especially those colocated with traditional public schools.Speaking to reporters after a lunch hosted by the Association for a Better New York — where Gov. Andrew Cuomo delivered the keynote speech — Stringer said an audit by his office should be required for any school that receives public funds.
While Cuomo has said he wants to change the state law to give charters additional protections, Stringer said he was a big proponent of complete mayoral control of the public school system.
But he appeared to criticize Mayor de Blasio’s decision to block three Success Academy charter schools from opening in public school buildings -- a reversal of the previous administration's decision to grant them space there.
"I believe in mayoral control,” Stringer said. “I do think this is important and I do think the mayor has authority. With that said, I do think that evicting 194 kids was not a smart move."
What about the public school students who were going to be displaced from their space by the Success students?
What about all the public school students in the decrepit public school buildings or trailers?
Nothing from Stringer about that.
He's too busy shilling for Eva.
In the past, he's taken Eva on.
But not this time around.
