I would be remiss if I didn't mention this story, for those of you who haven't heard about it yet.
The National Alliance for Public Charter Schools' headline on this story is "NYC to become national leader on facilities."
What's up with the timing here? It was announced four days before the Democrats' mayoral primary, and a scant two months before the election. Are charter schools really that popular in the city that Bloomy feels they'll give him a boost?
