The Privatizers want mayoral control. Better to resist than accommodate.

Parents across america: Attempted coup by ConnCan and TFA in Bridgeport – a cautionary tale

Connecticut Governor and privatizers work to install mayoral control in Bridgeport… I’ve long thought elected school boards are useless window dressing… but if that’s the case, why do opponents of public education work so hard to get rid of them?
In New York City our union has put forward the concept, backed by a first plan, that checks an balances are needed on mayoral control. I’ll support any limitation on mayoral control – but checks and balances are not enough. I do not believe that mayoral control would be ok, but just needs to be in the hands of a nice mayor. I believe mayoral control must end.

    End mayoral control. Bring back community involvement with all the stakeholders. Ensure that every voice is heard and respect, not heard and dismissed. Allow Democracy to have a place in education. Recall any member in a board that has an agenda that services the 1% and not the children. No more puppets and its puppetier – it must end!
