Did you miss Chairman Long on Capitol Tonight last night. Don't worry, we have it here.
The Members of the Legislature have gone home for the time being. They will certainly return before January to deal with some of the issues -- Mayor de Blasio's control over NYC schools for example -- they left on the table.
Chairman Mike Long will join NYCLU’s Donna Lieberman, Emily McNeil of the Labor-Religion Coalition, and Peter Iwanowicz of Environmental Advocates of NY. all members of New Yorkers Against Corruption to explain their opposition to a Constitutional Convention, tonight at 8:00 PM on Spectrum's Capital Tonight. Be sure to watch; it is repeated at 11:30 PM.
NY schools spend $21,206 per pupil. This exceeds the national average by 86% and yet, if you read about school budgets, you would think that New York was spending less than every other state. New York spends $64.8 billion with 2.6 million students (excluding Charter Schools), while California spends more, $75.5 billion with almost three times the number of students or 6.2 million.
