Stringer Report on DOE - Central Staffing Up 21% -

Important new report from NYC Comptroller on Department of Education watch list

Very important analysis from Comptroller showing increased spending on central administration at DOE, increased spending on private contracts with little oversight, and many initiatives such as Renewal schools and 2nd grade literacy coaches with little or no data provided by DOE to be able to assess their effectiveness.

When similar spending trends or questionable policies without evidence of their effectiveness were implemented by Bloomberg/Klein, they provoked real controversy, but DOE under de Blasio/Farina has gotten more of a pass.

Here are some notable excerpts, but the whole report should be read carefully.
