Charter association: Speaker Heastie wrong on the facts
 
Albany, NY – The Northeast Charter Schools Network today issued the following statement in response to Speaker Heastie’s claims that Assembly Democrats don’t support charter schools and that Senate Republicans don’t want charters in their districts.
 
Northeast Charter Schools Network CEO Kyle Rosenkrans said, “As the leader of a statewide legislative body, Speaker Heastie should know that half of the Senate Republicans have charter school families in their districts. So it's obvious that they would support the issue, as they have for years. 
 
“How much longer will Assembly Democrats continue to block the charter schoolhouse door? Tens of thousands of their constituents are languishing on waitlists and deserve an answer.”
 
About the Northeast Charter Schools Network: The Northeast Charter Schools Network is a regional advocacy organization for the more than 250 charter schools in New York and Connecticut. Its mission is to support and expand high quality charter schools in the region.
