Open Letter to Mayor de Blasio

We, the undersigned members of the Coalition for Education Equality, are deeply troubled by your desertion of public charter school children. Despite your rhetoric at Riverside Church that you care for “all” New York City children – “district, charter, parochial” – you have regularly refused to grant charter schools space in public school buildings. With every refusal you are denying Black and Hispanic families the opportunity — and right — to send their children to a high-quality charter school.
