There are many statements with which we take issue in Arthur Schwartz’s article in your July issue about his withdrawal from the Assembly race. But as parents who have been active in education issues over the last decade, in particular the efforts to secure the Foundling Hospital and 75 Morton Street as school space—efforts now coming to fruition—we take particular exception to this one: that Assemblymember Glick “was a non-advocate for school funding despite our district’s massively growing school-age population.” This is patently ridiculous. No public official was more vigorous and more successful in joining with parents to address our district’s school overcrowding, in addition to other vital concerns about public education.
