    LIU STATEMENT ON KLEIN CHARTER SPEECH
    ******************************************

    NEW YORK, N.Y. – City Comptroller John C. Liu stated the following in response to former Schools Chancellor Joel Klein’s speech today on charter schools:

    “Joel Klein’s contention that those who oppose the co-location of charter schools in district schools ‘lack … courage’ and ‘ignore’ charter school families is disingenuous in the extreme. We oppose co-location because it disrupts school communities and makes district-school students feel like second-class citizens when they see in the charter school new equipment and technology that their own classrooms lack. No New York City child should be disrespected in this manner, and shame on Mr. Klein for establishing the policy that made it so.”
