Sacrificing Schoolchildren for a Political Vendetta

On Monday, Fariña offered a pathetic response to requests for middle-school space from the Success Academy Network.Success wanted space for four middle schools (two in Brooklyn, one in The Bronx and one in Queens) plus reallocation of space at two existing middle schools. Fariña only provided two schools — slapping families in Rosedale, West Harlem, Cobble Hill and Williamsburg. It’s simply obscene that a chancellor and mayor who claim to care about children are instead doing their best to crush kids’ dreams.

Schools Chancellor Carmen Fariña last Thursday made public charter-school families a promise. At a town hall meeting in Brooklyn, she told parents of rising middle-schoolers sitting in the audience that “we have full expectation to, within the next week or two before Thanksgiving, giving you a placement, and we will be announcing it soon.” Her words were certainly a step in the right direction. Unfortunately, as public-charter families have learned, talk is cheap when it’s coming from the de Blasio administration.

The “operations” teams at Success Academy embedded in each of the network’s 46 schools handle a mix of logistical matters — from ordering supplies to managing the lunchroom — and family support. The mission of these behind-the-scenes teams is to attend to the myriad issues that arise inside a school on any given day — clogged toilets, upset parents, sick students — so that the educators and students can concentrate on teaching and learning.

Children Caught in the Crossfire of De Blasio’s Vendetta

Is Mayor de Blasio really willing to sacrifice the future of 842 sixth-grade kids to further his vendetta against charter schools? That’s how many Success Academy and Bronx Charter School for the Arts students will be forced back into the regular public schools if the city Department of Education continues to stall on OK’ing the charters’ request for space to open new middle schools.

Yet another study is out showing New York City charters outperforming the regular public schools — even as Mayor de Blasio keeps on working to stifle charters’ growth.

Go Further, Faster on School Integration

New York City public schools are among the most racially segregated in America. We need to have hard conversations with an eye toward action. New York’s diverse public charter schools are ready to partner and contribute their experience and expertise as part of the solution. We just need the mayor and Department of Education to listen.
