Demanding Justice, Equity & Fairness for Success Academy, New York Charter Students

(Newswire, June 5, 2018)  A NY Post editorial lays it on the line for Schools Chancellor Richard Carranza. If he truly wants to mend fences with the city’s high-performing charter schools and their leaders, he can start by granting long-languishing space requests and also end an injustice that NY1 exposed this week: discrimination by the Committee on Special Education against kids who attend Success Academy (it’s been slow-walking requests for Success Academy students, and even unfairly denying services). Carranza not only visited charters in the Bronx and Brooklyn recently, he acknowledged that “charter schools are public schools” all welcome signs but will he follow up with tangible change? After all, as the editorial points out, Team de Blasio has talked détente with the charter movement from time to time but never walked the walk.
