Mayor Eric Adams has firmly committed to backing the controversial schools during a Wednesday radio interview.
“Yes, I support charter schools,” Adams said in response to a question from WABC host Sid Rosenberg on whether he backs the publicly funded privately run schools, while calling into his show on Feb. 22.
“I have never wavered on my support of all schools in general, but specifically, with your answer, charter schools,” he added.
Adams repeated a line he’s been using over the past week that he supports “successful schools” no matter if they’re a charter, public or private school. He added that charter schools in particular have gotten an undeserved bad wrap, when he’s seen successful and failing iterations of both charter and public schools.
