Mayor Michael Bloomberg's reported hostile takeover of New York City's schools without a stated educational agenda should be a required study in how to read "newspapers of record" or "The Fourth Branch of Government." The mayor has seized political control over the board of education and has appointed Joel Klein, a high-ranking Justice Department official, as schools chancellor in New York City. The Justice Department has refused to budge over eradicating elected community school boards, even though some politicians are already willing to turn Black and Hispanic children over to a mayor who lacks the legal authority and educational credentials to unilaterally control the schools.
