While you’re on the topic of what elections may mean for education policy, what about a third Bloomberg term? Eduwonk has been supportive of his “reforms” while those of us with kids in the NYC public school system take a different view.
Bloomberg has 69% approval rating/21% disapproval; poll done last week by NY1.
So you’re saying those-of-you-with-kids-in-the-public-schools comprise the 21%?
We’re talking schools so lets look at Quinnippiac poll results for Schools Chancellor Joel Klein:
Approve 38%; Disapprove 41% and that disapprove rate climbs higher to 45% for black respondents, 43% Brooklyn and 43% women. And when they bothered to ask people who actually had kids in the system 52% disapproved of Klein’s performance.
The same polls show parents want an end to mayoral control and prefer an elected board despite the mayor’s strong approval ratings you cite.
