Mt. Vernon's charter school battle hurts students
A nice op ed by NYCSA's Peter Murphy supporting the Amani Charter School in Westchester (I included an email from the founder in a recent email):
It's one thing to debate charter school policy, which has been hot and heavy in New York going on 15 years. It's quite another to victimize students and their families when you don't get your way. The state Education Department, and its new commissioner, John King, need to act swiftly to put a stop to Mount Vernon district officials' attempt to deny children what his own agency and Regents board approved for them.
