They also discussed other education battles in the state like charter schools and Common Core standards. “I don’t think we should leave it up to a mayor whether or not charter schools are allowed to operate and to continue to grow, I believe we should have a state policy on that,” Cuomo told Lehrer.

Governor Cuomo’s opponents in these battles, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, is profiled by Peter Meyer in the new issue of Education Next.
