Good News or Bad!

Don't know if it will turn out to be a great news or a bad and even a worst one but this small article captured by eyes while going through daily Google Reader updates. It is a blog article posted up in NYTimes: http://cityroom.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/07/24/possible-deal-on-mayoral-control/

After a really heavy battle in the Senate with the Democrats and the Republicans, there has been some rumor that the mayor might get in control with the New York City schools. The amendments that are mentioned there say that City University of New York will be in charge of the board and "Chancellor Joel I. Klein will have the power to review principals, schools and schools will be required to have at least one annual meeting with the parents about the school safety and impact of officers at the school."

This amendment was made by Democrats: John L. Sampson; Deputy Mayor Dennis M. Walcott; and Randi Weingarten. A vote would have to be taken by early August. But till now, Albany still thinks that anything can happen to this bill.

Again the article is at here.
