De Blasio Says He Doesn’t Oppose Charter Schools

NEW YORK -

Mayor Bill de Blasio said Saturday that although he barred three charter schools from locating on public school grounds, he is not against them, and the city will work to find space for displaced students, The Associated Press reported. The mayor said after speaking at Al Sharpton’s National Action Network that the charters that lost classroom space either did not provide properly for children with special needs or would have housed elementary kids in a high school building.
