In an effort to set the record straight and heal a rift with New York State's Gov. Cuomo and charter school supporters, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio made a major speech on his education policies at Riverside Church last Sunday.

The wolves of Wall Street are out to destroy New York Mayor Bill de Blasio's universal pre-kindergarten plan.
When it comes to New York City's public schools, one thing is not in dispute: there are problems, a lot of them.
