Pressed on Specialized High School Admission Rules, De Blasio Says He’ll Talk to His Lawyers

Chalkbeat New York, 3.16.18

David Bloomfield, an education law professor at Brooklyn College and The Graduate Center, CUNY who has argued the city can unilaterally change the admissions rules, said he isn’t convinced the mayor will take action. “It’s positive but we’ve heard this before,” he said, referring to de Blasio’s comments this morning. If the mayor believes it’s in his power, Bloomfield added, “Why doesn’t he just do it?”
