Cuomo squares off against de Blasio’s charter school policies
Marc Santora reports that Andrew Cuomo supported a pro-charter school rally led by Bill de Blasio’s enemies. An interesting development, particularly given some of the controversy over Cuomo’s relationship with the unions.
Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo, standing shoulder to shoulder in Albany with thousands of parents and students who rallied in support of charter schools, vowed on Tuesday to defend the movement and offered a sharply different vision for their place in the educational system than Mayor Bill de Blasio’s.
“We are here today to tell you that we stand with you,” Mr. Cuomo said. “You are not alone. We will save charter schools.”
