Capital NY: A De Blasio-Connected Education Coalition Presents Its Blueprint For Pre-K
An organization affiliated with some of mayor-elect Bill de Blasio’s closest advisers has presented him with a plan to implement his signature universal pre-K and expanded after-school plans.
Jennifer Jones Austin, the co-chair of de Blasio’s transition team, is also the C.E.O. of the Federation of Protestant Welfare Agencies, which serves on the steering committee of the Campaign for Children. The Campaign for Children is also represented by Berlin Rosen, the firm that steered de Blasio’s campaign to victory, and might be in a position to get this particular plans noticed from among the litany of priority memos and education wishlists de Blasio is being inundated with.
