De Blasio and Cuomo: A friendly rivalry [illustration]
A version of this illustration by Paul Kisselev appeared in the May issue of Capital magazine.
“While de Blasio celebrated the pre-K funding, the budget didn’t deliver all of his demands. Without the tax, the pre-K funding is $40 million less than what he was seeking, and he doesn’t have the $190 million he planned to spend on after-school programs for middle school students ... The budget is unclear on new after-school funds … [and] boosts charters, providing more money per student and guaranteeing space in district school buildings for charters that are approved for co-location.”
