Don't raise the cap on charters; instead eliminate the obligation that NYC provide them with space & require more accountability!
Gov. Hochul has proposed raising the cap on charters statewide,and removing the regional limits, which could mean 100-300 more charter schools in NYC alone. Charter schools are already costing the DOE about $3 billion per year; and this proposal could double that cost, as well as take critical space from public schools needed to lower class size. Please send a message today to Gov. Hochul and your State Legislators saying: NO to raising the cap, and instead we need more charter accountability & to repeal the requirement that NYC has to provide them with space -- the only district in the nation with that obligation.
