Statement from Kathryn Wylde, President & CEO of the Partnership for New York City, on Provisional End-of-session Agreement in Albany

“The business community is relieved that the end-of-session compromise reflects an undiluted extension of mayoral control of the New York City schools. While we believe it should have been made permanent, this represents an affirmation by all parties that the best governance system is one that allows the voters to hold the mayor fully accountable. Similarly, the expansion of charter schools and support for non-public schools all work in the direction of more and better options for students. New York City had an ambitious agenda and much of it has been accomplished.”
