The Daily News finally steps in to comment on Sept. 27th.
I wonder if they’re reading the blogs.
Important videos on the Sept. 17th CEC hearing in Red Hook over the continued occupation of public school space by the PAVE Academy Charter School.
After a vigorous defense of the charter’s occupation of the building by NY Charter School Parents Association Prez Mona Davids, CEC Chair Jim Devor firmly set the record straight on whose jurisdiction it is to authorize space in schools.
Devor stated that a district’s CEC has the authority and the right to hold hearings on these issues of occupancy, and the DoE has the obligation to listen to its recommendations. The CEC does not have the authority to make the final decision, remarking rather colorfully:
“Nobody has authority except God, the mayor and the chancellor. And we’re not sure about God and the mayor.”
