"State Senate Leader John Flanagan wants to lift the charter cap for New York City as part of a budget deal. Flanagan lives on Long Island, where his constituents don’t want charters. Apparently, he thinks charters are for children of color. He should take a look at how charters have hollowed out major cities, stripping resources from the public schools, cherry-picking the best students, and harming the schools that most students attend. Flanagan’s spokesman said it was time to take “a global look” at the NYC school system. Good idea. If they did, they would realize that adding charters cripples the system as a whole."
