Why Mayoral control must be amended ; testimony for today

Joint State Legislative hearings are being held today starting at 10 AM; you can watch them here.  I'm slated to speak around 2:30 PM.  Though we've opposed the current governance system because one-man rule does not work, is inherently undemocratic and leads to dysfunctional decision-making, opposition to Mayoral control has grown in NYC and nationwide in the last few years.  

Several districts that once had Mayoral or state control have returned to an elected school board, as I point out in my testimony below.
