Weiner doesn't have a problem with Mayoral control, just the Mayor

Check out Elizabeth Green’s description in Gotham Schools of the two unexpected visitors to our panel discussion on school governance last night in Queens -- Council member Bill de Blasio, running for Public Advocate, and Congressman Anthony Weiner, a candidate for Mayor.

As opposed to de Blasio, Weiner said last night that he’s not against changing Mayoral control, just changing the Mayor. He didn’t seem to have listened to what anyone on the panel had said about the numerous problems with the current governance system: Weiner doesn’t have a question; de Blasio on mayoral autocracy
