4. A new Quinnipiac poll came out yesterday, showing that only 26% of New Yorkers approve of the way Bloomberg is handling our schools; 61% disapprove. 57% think he has failed to improve our schools, and only 13% think the next mayor should retain mayoral control. The mayor blamed his poor showing on the ads the UFT has been running and said that if he bought up enough ad time, he could reverse the results.
I have added a poll to the right hand side of our parent blog; do you think the mayor’s handling of our schools has been successful? Do you think that the mayor should retain control over our schools? Please answer the questions now at http://nycpublicschoolparents.blogspot.com/
