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.
