NYC Reaches Its Charter School Cap
The remaining seven openings for charter schools in New York City has been tentatively filled by the SUNY's Board Of Trustees. This means that, unless an existing charter school closes down, no new charter schools can be located in New York City.
With both the Assembly and Senate overwhelmingly Democrat, raising the charter school cap in New York City is out of the question and the existing 99 open slots for charters in New York State are not eligible to be located in New York City..
