Why the charter cap should NOT be raised & what should CECs and parents do about this.

Updated March 5, 2023

You can  send an email to your Legislators here, in opposition  to Gov. Hochul’s proposal to lift the NYC charter cap and that instead the charter law needs to be strengthened, to eliminate NYC’s onerous and unfair obligation to provide all new and expanding charter schools with space, remove loopholes which allow existing charter schools to expand to all grade levels, and to require more oversight, transparency and accountability.

Already CEC 4, CEC 15, CEC 21, CEC 28, CPAC and the NAACP Jamaica branch have passed different versions of the resolution we drafted, making many of the same points, with votes by others to come.  In two reports we released in 2019 and 2020,  we found that DOE had overspent by millions of dollars for charter school rent, and had underpaid public schools in matching funds for facility enhancements by millions of dollars compared to the amount required by law.

See the presentation here and below. If your CEC or Presidents Council would like a similar briefing, or have any questions, please email us at info@classsizematters.org.   Thanks!
