Adios, Night School

Mayor Mike has quietly killed night school, so if your kids fall asleep in class, they'll need a better excuse. The city expects to save 4 million dollars,previously frittered away on teacher salaries, with this measure. Principals will now be able to apply for funds for new programs.

As everyone knows, new programs are far better than old programs. That's why Mayor Mike and Uncle Joel don't waste their time insisting on good teachers or decent facilities for NYC's 1.1 million kids.

Why spend money on teachers? Why create a state-of-the-art school building on space that could be used for condos? Why give nice buidlings to indigent children when there are billionaires in need of stadiums and charter schools?

Get real, New York.
