David Bloomfield, an education and law professor at the CUNY Grad Center and Brooklyn College, who has been critical of charter school co-locations, said the new charter school protections would be a blow to Mr. de Blasio's agenda. Under the deal, the city would be required to contribute 20% of the per-pupil cost toward a private space for charter schools if space within a Department of Education building isn't available.

“The evidence now isn’t just undeniable, it’s over the top,” Richard Wolin, an intellectual historian at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York and the author of several books on Heidegger, said in an interview. “Heidegger was engaged with these issues philosophically and intellectually through the course of the whole regime.”

While past research has shown that community college students have a significantly lower change of attaining a bachelor's degree than those who start directly at four-year schools, the root of the problem isn't in something community colleges are or are not doing to prepare students, says David Monaghan, a sociology Ph.D. candidate at the Graduate Center of CUNY and co-author of the study… Monaghan and his colleague Paul Attewell, a CUNY professor, found that for 14 percent of transfer students, fewer than 10 percent of their credits were accepted by their new institution.

If not for the loss of academic credits when students transfer from community colleges to four-year colleges and universities, 54 percent of them would graduate, compared to the 46 percent who do now, the research, conducted at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York, found. “Loss of credits is a tax on transfer students,” CUNY researcher David Monaghan said. “Policymakers should be pushing both community colleges and four-year institutions to address it.” Monaghan and his coauthor, Paul Attewell, found that the credit barrier was the reason community-college students who transfer to four-year universities graduate at lower rates than classmates who began in them—not a lack of academic preparation or financial aid.

In “Capital in the Twenty-First Century,” Professor Piketty offers a general theory of capitalism that returns distribution to the center of the analysis. Branko Milanovic, an expert on the global distribution of income at the City University of New York’s Graduate Center, called it “one of the watershed books in economic thinking.”
