A reader says that Eva Moskowitz’s plan to close her Success Academy charter schools and take 9,000 students to a political rally in Albany is illegal. The question is whether her schools are public schools or private schools. If they are private schools, they are not subject to Chancellor’s Regulations. But, if they are private schools, why did the Legislature give them free space in public buildings and require the city to pay their rent in private buildings?

He writes:

“As stated in Chancellor’s Regulations: D-130

“Personnel may not be involved in any activities, including fundraising, on behalf of any candidate, candidates, slate of candidates or political organization/committee during working hours.”

“Families For Excellent Schools is a political organization. This is completely illegal.
