NYC parents express doubts over Education Council election results, demand independent audit from DOE


A group of New York City parents say they smell a rat with how the city’s Education Council members are elected, and they’re demanding more transparency from the city’s Department of Education (DOE). 

Around two dozen people rallied on Tuesday to demand that the DOE permit an independent recount of all votes from the 2023 Citywide and Community Education Council elections, charging that the agency “failed public school families by not managing the 2023 elections with fidelity, transparency, and equity.”
