City’s Lawyers Say Mayor Can’t Control Class Sizes - New York Times
Published: September 7, 2006

Lawyers for Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg told an appeals court yesterday that the mayor did not have the authority to force the school system to reduce class sizes.

The claim came during a hearing in a case in which parents and teachers are trying to put a referendum on the ballot to force the mayor to hire more teachers and reduce the class sizes in city schools. They argue that smaller classes, in line with those in much of the rest of the state, are the best way to improve education for city students.
