Parents fume over Governor Hochul’s charter school expansion proposal

Protesting outside of 633 3rd Avenue, the rally, hosted by advocacy group Make the Road New York, called upon the state legislature to reject the proposal outright. The fuming parents didn’t mince words when it came to showing their frustration, with some even brandishing signs that accused the governor of being in the pocket of charter schools. Speakers likewise renounced that 80 to 100 new charter schools could be created as a result of the agenda, something that parents said would cripple the schools.
