Prodding the DOE to enact the small class-size law
Season 4, Episode 4 -
The latest episode of the UFT podcast “On the Record with Michael Mulgrew” focuses on the city Department of Education’s foot-dragging on the new state law requiring New York City to lower class sizes in its public schools. Mulgrew and education activist Leonie Haimson discuss how educators, parents and community groups need to push the DOE to implement the new law. The clock is ticking for the DOE to plan for September 2023, when the first 20% of New York City public school classrooms must meet the new class-size caps.
