Team de Blasio’s recipe for eternally failing schoolsNYC mayor De Blasio in BGHS in Brooklyn

Fri, 28 Oct 2016 01:17:11 -0400

Research backs up what common sense dictates: Students in good schools learn more in a year than those in poor schools. For instance, Stanford University has found that students attending New York City charters learn the equivalent of five more months of math in a year than their peers in traditional schools. Comparing good traditional...

Will Mayor de Blasio leash the city’s campaign-finance watchdog?TechCrunch Disrupt NY 2015 - Day 1

Fri, 28 Oct 2016 00:23:03 -0400

Rose Gill Hearn, who chairs the Campaign Finance Board, has resigned, effective Dec. 31. So Mayor de Blasio gets to fill the seat — when the board is still in the process of auditing his 2013 campaign, even as his 2017 re-election campaign is gearing up. Now, the CFB has a lot of power: It...

ACS Worker: Bosses ‘don’t give a s–t’ about absurd caseloadscps

Thu, 27 Oct 2016 23:36:58 -0400

The city is deceptive when it says child-welfare workers are now handling an average of about nine cases at a time — when the real figure is easily more than 20, at least in The Bronx. That’s a big reason why there’s such high turnover at the Administration for Children’s Services. Many caseworkers use their...

Schools activist: Dem Sweep and Education Reform If Hillary Clinton wins big and carries both houses of Congress with her, what would that mean for education reform? Says Michael J. Petrilli at the Thomas B. Fordham Institute’s Web site: “It ain’t good.” That’s because most reform-minded elected officials are “mainstream conservative Republicans” from swing suburban...

Four days before the election, Mel Gibson’s new movie — “Hacksaw Ridge” — is going to hit the screens. It’s about Private Desmond Doss, a Seventh Day Adventist who refused to carry a weapon but went into the Battle of Okinawa as a medic. And won the Medal of Honor. What an example Doss is...

The war on HalloweenTrump Halloween

We fear it’s going to be a dull Halloween on campuses across the nation thanks to the war on “offensive” costumes. After meeting with Tufts University’s dean of student affairs, the school’s Greek Life Council sent out a letter warning against “inappropriate, offensive, or appropriative costumes” — and any that “reproduce stereotypes on race, gender,...

Mayor de Blasio’s deal to do a weekly interview with NY1’s Errol Louis is yet another bid to control his press availability while seeming to be open. Louis is a pro, and we expect he’ll ask some tough questions. But he can’t stand in for the entire, diverse City Hall press corps — which is...

Cracking down on Airbnb means a windfall for hotelsgettyimages-470533028

Wed, 26 Oct 2016 20:45:20 -0400

If you thought New York’s new anti-Airbnb law is about protecting the little guy, as its sponsors claim, guess again: It’s really about crushing what the hotel industry and its unions see as a competitive threat. Mike Barnello, chief executive of LaSalle Hotel Properties, last Thursday said the law “should be a big boost in...

Trump’s final humiliation of the GOPDonald Trump

Wed, 26 Oct 2016 20:43:17 -0400

When the news hit on Tuesday that the Trump campaign has washed its hands of fund-raising efforts two weeks before the election, the humiliation of the traditional Republican Party at the hands of Donald Trump was all but complete. His refusal to help fill party coffers just as the last push for voters commences —...

From the left: Who Are the Disgruntled Voters? Al Hunt at Bloomberg View sat in a recent focus group with a dozen still-undecided voters and found it “the most negative one I’ve ever seen” in some 40 years.
