Longtime Assemblyman David Gantt says the Rochester City School District is “failing” students and he wants to change that.
The Rochester Democrat has two bills in conference to change how the district is managed. One would give more control to the superintendent and the other would give the mayor control of the district. Gantt said that system has improved New York City schools, and he believes Rochester should try it.
“Our kids are failing,” Gantt said. “Something has to change. That’s why I believe in mayoral control.”
