Here is Leonie Haimison's scathing report on the failure of the administration to perform due diligence before it awards contracts, in this case, for special education services, for Amazon, and for new technology. Leonie reads every contract that the New York City Department approves and did the same during the Bloomberg years. Once again, as under Bloomberg, the city’s Panel on Educational Policy (actually known in the law as the New York City Board of Education) mutely acquiesces and approves whatever the administration asks for, without debate or discussion. Leonie Haimson (Class Size Matters) is unpaid but tireless and determined to police the awarding of contracts, as well as the administration’s attention to class size. She also is deeply involved in protecting student privacy.
