High Approval, But Not on Education

Mike Bloomberg said that as mayor, he wants voters to judge him on education. Lucky for him that they haven’t done so.

According to today’s Quinnipiac poll:

By a 58 – 31 percent margin, voters say an independent board of education should control the public schools – not the mayor. Looking at control of individual public schools, 38 percent of voters prefer neighborhood-based boards of education should have most control, with 33 percent who say principals should have most control and 18 percent who say officials from the Education Department should have control.

Schools Chancellor Joel Klein’s numbers: 33 percent approve, 43 percent disapprove and 24 percent are undecided.
