Poor Ratings for De Blasio on Education Policies

Last week, Mayor de Blasio received a 49 percent disapproval rating on his handling of public schools, according to a Quinnipiac poll cited by the New York Daily News.

The poll showed that while only 14 percent want a reduction in charter schools, 39 percent want the number of schools to stay the same and 40 percent want an increase in charter schools while de Blasio says he wants to slow the expansion of charter schools, not eliminate them, according to the Daily News.

The poll also showed that though 86 percent support de Blasio’s policy of universal pre-kindergarten education, voters favored Governor Cuomo’s funding of it through state revenues and not de Blasio’s┬áproposed┬átax hike on the rich, according to the Daily News.
