The completely unnecessary wars over education launched by Mayor de Blasio continued this week, with the specter of dueling rallies in Albany.
One was a protest against de Blasio’s decision to undercut charter schools at every turn. The innovative public schools, though not without problems, are providing wonderful educational opportunities to many students, especially hard-working minorities in poor neighborhoods. But they are anathema to de Blasio’s allies in the teachers union because they are not subject to their rules, and he apparently would rather see those students forced back into substandard traditional schools than be given such a great chance to succeed.

Anthony Lombardi speaks to the crowd of students and teachers during his retirement ceremony on Friday afternoon.
When the NYS Education Department announced that a new data program, InBloom, would replace the controversial ACRIS, many parents had no complaints.

Inside the gymnasium packed tightly with students, teachers and alumni, PS 49 said a heartfelt goodbye to their beloved leader.

(NAPSI)—Young men in the United States often find turning 18 can bring a number of opportunities. It also brings an important obligation-registering with Selective Service.
It’s February and the city has been socked for weeks by snow, ice and frigid temperatures in the most miserable winter many can remember. At City Hall, a new mayor from a political party that has not held the city’s top office in 20 years has just taken the reins of power, and his honeymoon period when he should be unveiling his ambitious agenda is instead frozen over by the icy weather.
But this is not 2014. Instead it’s 1994 and that new mayor is Rudy Giuliani.

Yunseong Esther Kim doesn’t think so, however. And last Thursday she was honored by the Fund for the City of New York and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation for her work as an algebra and geometry teacher at Francis Lewis in the high school’s library.
