When Will Class Sizes Decrease?
One of the legacies of Michael Bloomberg are large class sizes. The ex Mayor saw no problem in large class sizes as he refused to spend money on more teachers and if it was up to him, class sizes would double and reduce the teaching staff by 50%.
When Bill de Blasio became Mayor one of his campaign promises was to reduce class sizes. However, he has failed to live up to his promise and class size are as high as under Mayor Bloomberg. New York City has the highest class sizes in the State.
Now that Mayor De Blasio is in his second term and has had two Chancellors, don't look for any class size reductions for the Mayor's final two years in office.
