Leonie Haimson: Mike Bloomberg’s Disastrous Education Record

It should be illegal for schools to be under the control of the mayor’s office, like Chicago and NY. Schools should controlled by a local board of local people.

Diane Ravitch's blog

Leonie Haimson, one of New York City’s leading people-public education advocates, has written a comprehensive appraisal of Mike Bloomberg’s education record as mayor. You will not read a more deeply knowledgeable article anywhere.

In his multimillion dollar ad campaign, Bloomberg presents himself as a champion of children. If you read Haimson’s article, you will see that he was a champion of charter schools. You will also see that he was autocratic, condescending towards parents, and disrespected educators.

Please read it.
