Why did you edit out my reference about the Board of Education vs. the Department of Education? It is relevant. Jun 28, 2013
This article implies that the problem with education is with the representative from the Borough President's office. That is not the case. Dmytro has been supportive Queens communities on important issues including Title 1 funding, overcrowding, school closings, special education reform and G&T seats. The problem is that the Mayor get 8 seats to the 5 seat appointments from the BPs. No matter what the BP rep does, the mayor's agenda is steam rolled through. Frankly the fact that she said "Board of Education" instead of "Department of Education" or DoE, tips you off to the fact that she hasn't been paying enouhgh attention to education. Ms. Katz will need to understand that issue if she is going to an effective supporter of education, or we will have our BP learning on the job. Ms. Katz, please brush up. Our kids will need you ready, if you get elected.
