Adams calls for extension of mayoral control of public schools


Mayor Eric Adams and NYC Schools Chancellor David Banks joined parents and education advocates outside of Bayside High School on Tuesday, March 8, calling for a four-year extension of mayoral accountability in the state budget in order to ensure stability in the nation’s largest public school system.

Adams applauded Governor Kathy Hochul for sending a “loud and clear message” that mayoral accountability is needed for four years, and that it should be included in the budget.
