We have heard via our friends in the legislature that there is a real push by the Assembly and the Senate to include requirements on reducing class size in the extension of Mayoral Control. In he NY Post, NY State Sen. John Liu, the powerful chair of the NYC Education Committee, was quoted as saying he supports reducing class size as part of amending Mayoral control.
Please call your legislators! Tell your Assembly member and Senator that you need them to push for smaller class caps as part of any Mayoral control package , along the lines of S. 6296/A. 7447 , with strong accountability measures attached.
The legislative session ends next week on June 2; we only have a few days to get this done!
