  1. Right you are, after 3 semesters of running the schools little if anything has changed as Brodsky & Company still rule the nest. Ask the folks in schools, the chapter leaders, the DR's if anything of significance has changed. According to LaMama(Farina), superintendents were to have more say and power to run their districts. If so, why so many complaints without merit still being upheld by the legal eagles at Tweed? This administration has conducted less transparency, the same or more fraudulent policies, and has no concern over the outcries or well being of the school community. Pre-K is the end withal DeBlasio head Is up in the clouds or where the sun does not shine!!
