The Albert Shanker Institute.

Success Academy has misrepresented its suspensions to the U.S. Education Department’s Civil Rights Data Collection, reporting only two suspensions while reporting hundreds of suspensions to the NewYork State Education Department.

When students of the same age groups are compared, Success Academy charter schools suspend their students at roughly seven times the rate of New York City public schools.

The suspended students are overwhelmingly African American and Latino. Moskowitz’s attacks on New York City public schools reform efforts is designed as a shot across the bow of the U.S. Education Department and U.S. Justice Department, which has advised that excessive suspensions of students of color is a violation of U.S. civil rights law.

Unity Caucus: Cuomo's Approval Continues to Drop 

A new Quinnipiac poll shows that Governor Cuomo’s job approval rating continues to drop; He’s reached a new record low of just 43%, which pollsters called “Cuomo’s lowest grade ever”.

The Governor’s free-fall is being fueled by his toxic education agenda, with 54% of NYers unhappy with how he has handled educational issues.

And Cuomo’s big negatives aren’t limited to education; Voters feel he’s ethically-challenged as well, with 52% of voters expressing their displeasure with how he has handled ethics in government.
