NYS Regents to Consider Expanding Power to Take Over Schools

Dear Commons Community,

Newsday is reporting that the NYS Regents will be considering a plan to expand its powers to take over poorly performing public schools.  Part of the proposal would allow charter schools, universities and private contractors to manage schools instead of local school boards or local education departments.
