Everyone needs to hear what Norm Scott said to the Panel for Educational Policy last Wednesday. It is classic Norm expressing the frustrations most of us who have anything to do with the NYC school system under mayoral control feel. Nobody is listening to the public. Telling us we can vote out the mayor once every four years is not enough democracy. I would venture to say with some confidence that most of the voters do not have kids in the public school system. Mayoral control is the problem.
Norm is next.
