GOVERNOR HOCHUL PROPOSES FOUR-YEAR EXTENSION OF MAYORAL CONTROL OF NYC SCHOOLS

I probably wasn't going to vote for Kathy Hochul as she is a typical corporate Democrat but after seeing her Executive Budget includes extending the mayor's control of the New York City schools for four more long years, that sealed the deal: Hochul's gotta go. 

From the Budget Briefing Book:


NYSUT looks happy that the state aid will keep pouring into local districts. I have no problem with state money coming to NYC however we have seen that extra state aid coming to NYC seldom finds its way directly to the classroom. See our higher class sizes in NYC for evidence.

Mulgrew?

Mayoral control was only given to Bloomberg because he promised to give us our long overdue raises in 2002 if we gave him mayoral control. Unfortunately, it's become a my way or no way system. Too much power corrupts the possessor.

JAMES WE CAN AGREE!!!!! SATAN MUST GO!!!
1. not elected
2. wants to mask 2-3 year olds
3. mandates on nurses teachers etc (this is where James agrees) ordering boosters for SUNY & cuny

What did Eric Adamasio II and Hochul discuss behind the scenes?

Dr_Dru said...

UFT will endorse her anyway...you know, to have a seat at the table.

Because it is working so well with Adams

Do we get to vote on this in the contract or did we sign away our voice forever?thought it was temp.can Satan hochul just give mayoral control to schools?how does this machine or runaway train work?

The seat at the table is the high chair.

Hochul is running for re-election and wants no rifts with Adams. She wants his full support—and mayoral control of schools is the name of the game for at least another 4 years.

They are discussing tweeking mayoral control whatever that means. Did you read David Banks's email regarding 3 more appointments he just made and one of them is an advisor for him. What happened to cutting the bureaucratic bloat?

Anonymous said...

Mayoral control has been a complete disaster for NY city public schools.
The democratic party will never give up control of the schools.
They own this disaster and must be held completely accountable.

The UFT is part of the problem. They are not part of the solution.
The problem and the solution are mutually exclusive.

He claims they did cut the bloat a lot.

If it’s Hochul on the ticket it’s still blue no matter who right? NY Dems know teachers will keep their party in power no matter what so let’s stop pretending. If the dem machine wants Hochul, it’s going to be Hochul on the ticket. I’m voting Republican. Enough with abusing children over mandates when kids are not dying from COVID like the elderly and sickly. I do however support a remote option for parents who want it.

Anonymous said...

Well?

That may already be happening, by the way, to some extent — anecdotally from what I have heard from educators, some schools have been marking kids present even if they’re not physically present, particularly if they’re quarantining or positive.

The Dems never own anything.they just blame Republicans and keep messing up with their liberal policies.i used to be one till I saw what they became.protecting criminals instead of law abiding citizens and those who work.supportillegal immigration and allowing them vote for the policies that helped them.im leaving ny when I retire, if I can survive till then.

Agree with 10:01am Never thought I would want to leave NY but now I cannot wait until I retire and move somewhere with sanity and lower taxes. If there was hope I would fell a little better but just like teachers are stuck in an unfair system that will keep Mulgrew in power the Democrats have taken control and are choking this city from the inside out while blaming everybody but themselves - and the masses stay hopelessly uninformed.

down south in 5 years or less dems have ruined this state completely, people are blind and need to wake up. Lawless city, you can resist arrest, point a gun with no consequences? Common sense laws yet so common sense in the dem party. They want to take away filibuster, inflation insane, no impeachment for the afghanistan mess. Biden has more deaths this year and has given up on efforts to combat the covid.

So, many in my school are waiting for Covid results 2+ weeks.... Some just a week. Makes you feel safe, yeah?

Mayoral control of the schools have been a complete disaster. I want to know do we have a say in determining mayoral control of the schools.

Im with you. moving out of this state within the next 6 months. ny is losing its tax base at an alarming rate. only ones left will be the takers in our society. you guys know who they are. Going to pack my hard work ethic, conversative ideology and love for my great country with me. Moving to either South Carolina or Florida where many of my patriotic cop/teacher retired friends have already moved. they all love how free they are from government nonsense/authority and are allowed to exercise their constitutional rights without fear/concern from the woke radical liberal mob. the rotten apple is getting more rotten everyday. escape now everyone. leave ny to the liberal idiots.

James narrative gone he truly believed with 75% here mandatory vaccines necessary and the vaccine 95% effective and safe you cannot get or spread. Joe Biden was going to kill the virus lol, voted for a fraud, bunch of sheep.

Used to be 1 shot or 2 shots now 3 or 4 shots. Starbucks no more mandate, UK no more mandates, its crumbling James, You were dead wrong like the 800,000 deaths.

We change our view when the reality on the ground changed because of Alpha, Delta and Omicron.

This is from Time:

In New York, one of the first states to get slammed by the Omicron wave, both vaccinated and unvaccinated have seen an uptick in serious COVID-19 cases—but the gap in hospitalization rates between the two groups is effectively widening. Before mid-November, unvaccinated New Yorkers were hospitalized for COVID-19 at about 10 times the rate as their vaccinated neighbors. But since then, they’ve been about 14 times more likely to wind up in the hospital.

Thanks James for your left leaning snopes type article, laughable thats your "evidence."

I media fact checked it and does not give you any standing. I was correct about Ivermectin when people here had no clue what it was except learning its a horse dewormer and are ignorant about it.

If you want your child to wear a mask allow them otherwise masks and vaccines are not doing much. Flu is back with covid, people get sick James.

6:38 - who are the takers in our society? People like Trump who says he milks the system every chance he gets because he can afford lawyers who finds every loophole? Dragged his tax case through the system until they gave up and granted him a $25 million tax forgiveness? People like millionaire Mnuchin who bragged that he was one of the first in line to receive his Covid relief funds? Surely you must mean people like them. Those are the takers in society I know. Who were you talking about? You're a conservative so you must mean the poor or needy who receive free or reduced lunch for their children. Don't let the door hit you on the way out. The air's starting to smell better already.

@3:58 you mean Pelosi insider stock trading worth 90 million, waters, finestein, schumer, Biden, Mcconnell etc all these swamp rats who worth 50 million plus.

TRump took 4 dollars in 4 years never took his 400,000 salary, so what if he finds loopholes he has done nothing illegal or has been charged.

Just like Mulgrew needs term limits so do politicians, it is not a life job it's a public service 2-4 years and bye.

Fraud Trump has plenty of documented Mafia ties. But go ahead, keep protecting your daddy. He's part of the same swamp as the rest of them. Ooo and he loves watching the teenage beauty pageant performers change their clothing. But yeah, he is so wildly different and better than that rest of these people. He doesn't pay his taxes, and did nothing to change the "loopholes" that allow this, but no he is a true leader, someone who plays by the rules. Wrong is wrong, indecent is indecent, immoral is immoral.. legality is a matter of what the ruling class allows or doesn't allow. And he is part of that class, and you are just a puppet on a string, fighting to protect them by targeting only one flank of that big club. Kill your idols Anon, it'll do you good.

Not to mention the history of redlining, and segregationist practices. Tax evasion. Draft dodger. Phony bankruptcy claims. Not fulfilling contracts for work done on his properties. Epstein ties. Clinton ties. Multiple rape allegations even from his own wife, a trail of NDA's, the demonization of the Central Park 5 that he was too fragile and weak to apologize for. A sleazy, perverted public relationship with his own daughter. Gross, just gross. But, you know, I guess Anon is into all of that, since he loves to defend the bumbling buffoon.

1/2 truths and BS no esptein ties that clintons, your hollywood elite, judges, and sickos around the world. Biden raped his own daughter, married his babysitter JIll, not even getting into all the pedo stuff his son has done legit not fake like TRump orrrr the 100's of creepy hugs and child talk from your perverter and chief. Same guy who locked up african americans left and right. Did not want his kids in a racial jungle. 50 years of being on the wrong side, and you are going after TRump who in 4 years did more than all your elite leaders combined.

I never will say TRump is perfect, he is narcisstic and has his own flaws. You must be a pedo with a brain for a rock since you have little to none critical thinking skills, Keep watching your fake BS news like the fake russia hoax your baby brain believed

I thought this Post was about supporting 4 more years of Mayoral control of our schools???? Isn't it?? You lost me.

Mayoral control should have an exit point at some time, it has not had any drastic improvements for our kids, just lots of chaos and confusion for administrators and teachers alike. Mayoral control has raised the temperature and anxiety for stakeholders. This has not been healthy for us or the very children we are suppose to serve.

Pivoting back to Local Community School Boards might better serve NYC school children. Individual Communities know what may or may not be best for the children and families they serve within their own districts.

Under Mayoral control, seems things are a one size fits all. Our kids are not a one size fits all.

Anon2323 - you are a complete and utter moron if you think that Trump "only took 4 dollars in 4 years". That has to be, hands down, the dumbest thing you have posted on this board, and that is saying a lot since all you do is post regurgitated propaganda and nonsense. Trump used the office to enrich himself and that is a FACT. But still, DOPEY, you didn't answer the question, exactly WHO are the takers the poster was referring to? I doubt you're the poster who said that, because for all of his ramblings,he sounded a lot more coherent than you ever do. You sound like a washed out, unhinged, bitter old fool.


@7:04 - are you stupid? This *was* about mayoral control of schools, until a conservative turned it into liberal bashing. And I noticed that you call out a lot of posters and not one comment directed at the sociopath Anon2323 with his despicable lies.

Socipath lol, THAT IS HOCUL!!! You are a little brainwashed sheep bahhhhhhhhhhhh

boy you sound unhinged, must be related to Maddow. Your intuition sucks so everything you think is utter crap. The 4 dollars meaning he claimed 1 dollar a year he never took his salary, but boy that drove you off the wall.

Trump lost 2 Billion as president, your little tiny, lack of any type of critical thinking brain is laughable.

Biden and the Clintons are the ones who made millions where have you been? Whatever crazy news cycle you have does not tell you the truth.

Hey Anon2323 - You really think you can get away with claiming he only took 1 dollar a year after he enriched himself by overcharging the Secret Service and used his personal resorts for business dealings. I'm starting to think that stupid act of yours is not an act after all. Maybe you really are that dumb. Hahaha @ saying anyone lacks critical thinking when all you do is post regurgitated propaganda crap from Alex Jones and other wacky conspiracy site. Bwahahaha. Oh No...the NY Post. Oh yeah, they're credible. Like I said, your STUPIDITY is not an act.

Here dummy: "He has spent one out of every three days as president visiting one of his luxury resorts, hotels or golf courses. He has leveraged his powerful international platform to promote his developments dozens of times. And he has directed millions of dollars from U.S. taxpayers to his businesses around the globe.

In three years in the White House, Donald Trump has accomplished something no president before him has done: fusing his private business interests with America’s highest public office"

https://www.politico.com/news/2020/01/20/trump-businesses-empire-tied-presidency-100496

"And when it comes to wringing bucks out of this administration, no one can match President Donald Trump himself for the sheer depth and breadth of his national grift. Hell, the way he's set things up it's virtually impossible to even capture its scope. Thanks to presidential ethics laws that never contemplated a businessman president who would not follow the political norms of divesting himself of his businesses, disclosing his taxes and generally trying to avoid conflicts of interest, much and possibly all of this is legal if unseemly. "The president can't have a conflict of interest," Trump noted even before he took office, perhaps confusing a technical matter of law for a broader matter of ethics.

https://www.usnews.com/opinion/articles/2018-03-05/how-is-donald-trump-profiting-from-the-presidency-let-us-count-the-ways

"Donald Trump reported making more than $1.6 billion in outside revenue and income during his four years as President of the United States, according to a review of his financial disclosures by CREW. While Trump publicly took credit for donating his taxpayer-funded salary, that ended up being less than 0.1% of the revenue and income he disclosed during his presidency. Far from being a sacrifice, the donation was merely a fig leaf to cover up four years of brazen corruption."
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

But I am not surprised if he still lost billions, because he's ALWAYS been a loser that no matter how much he was given drove his businesses into the ground. So where have *YOU* been?"
