Brooklyn- Statement of Senator Marty Golden (R-C-I, Brooklyn) on Mayor Bill de Blasio’s recent action on charter schools in New York City:

“Charter schools are public schools that enhance and improve education opportunities for all New York's children and are proven effective. I am disappointed in Mayor de Blasio, and his administration. Charters schools are a vital and important part of the education equation, and must be part of the conversation when discussing the educational needs of our children. I hope that the Mayor and the Chancellor reconsider their opposition to charter schools and I will continue to work in Albany to ensure that students and parents have as many options as possible when it come to schools, and that includes charters.”
