Vid: Sick—NYC's Bill de Blasio Puts Politics Before Poor Kids

The mayor has a vendetta against charter-school leader and former political rival Eva Moskowitz.


About 11,000 charter-school students and their parents descended on the state capitol building in Albany on Tuesday to protest New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio's decision to block two new charter schools from opening next year and to halt the expansion of a third.

De Blasio will allow 16 other charter schools to move forward with their plans to open next year. So what does he have against these three schools in particular? The answer: He's settling an old political score on behalf of his cronies in the teachers union.
