#30issueschat: Education

Monday, September 23, 2013 - 10:00 AM

Throughout the Brian Lehrer Show's election series "30 Issues in 30 Days," we're hosting a Twitter chat every Friday afternoon at 2pm to discuss the key issues for New York City and New Jersey's election. On Friday, September 20th, we hosted a #30IssuesChat around education - the topic for the first week of 30 Issues (9/23-9/27). Below, some highlights. Track the full hashtag conversation here. And join us this Friday at 2pm on Twitter for another #30IssuesChat.

Q1: All the major candidates seem to embrace Obama's common core? Are we all on the same page with that?


Q2: What should we do about failing schools? De Blasio doesn't seem to want to close them as quickly as Bloomberg has.


Q3: To the critics out there, what Bloomberg reforms would you KEEP?


Q4: Parents have felt locked out during Bloomberg years - but what's the most productive role for parents moving forward?


More interesting comments during the chat.
