"I'm angry beyond belief. Mayor de Blasio, how dare you."That’s Shea Reeder, who describes herself as “furious” because NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio shuttered the planned opening of a new Success Academy charter school in Harlem. Ms. Reeder’s son was slated to attend the new school. Eva Moskowitz, who runs the Success Academy schools told the Wall St. Journal,
"This is the saddest day in Success Academy history," Ms. Moskowitz said ahead of a rally outside Success Academy school in Harlem, which she had wanted to expand to fifth through eighth grades in a city building. "I could never have imagined that I would be standing here before you saying that the mayor wants to close a high-performing school."
