State Senator Liz Krueger Holds Public Hearing On The Upcoming Expiration Of The New York City Education And Reform Accountability Act Of 2002


State Senator Liz Krueger along with her colleagues on the Senate Democratic Conference Task Force on School Governance will hold a public hearing to examine the New York City Education and Reform Accountability Act of 2002, which granted the Mayor control of the New York City School System. This law was intended to overhaul the City's public school system by consolidating most of the administrative and personnel powers into the office of the Schools Chancellor, who is solely accountable to the Mayor. The law expires on June 30, 2009, and the hearing will provide an opportunity for education advocates to evaluate and offer feedback on the successes and failures of this law, and provide suggestions as to how the school governance legislation might be improved.
