Mayoral control set to expire tonight

Mayoral control of the city's public schools is set to expire at midnight tonight, unless the State Senate acts. GothamSchools has the latest, including the news that Bronx BP Ruben Diaz Jr. has appointed someone to the serve on a hypothetical Board of Education.

While a return to the old way of doing things is unlikely, a number outcomes are still possible. The Times has a good overview on this.

Above is a recent episode of BronxTalk featuring Joyce Johnson from Learn-NY, a pro-mayoral control group, and Vincent Wojsnis, a teacher at MS 399, who believes "mayoral control is out of control." Wojsnis has previously written about this issue for the Mount Hope Monitor.
