From Housing to an Arab Academy
August 14th, 2007
In light of the New York City Housing Authority’s fiscal crisis, The News is urging Governor Spitzer to sign a bill that would give authority tenants a “fairer” subsidy compared to residents on public assistancein private buildings . Currently, they state, those in privately owned buildings receive nearly triple what authority residents get, which cheats the fiscally handicapped housing agency out of state funding.
The Post reiterates and defends its position regarding Debbie Almontaser’s resignation from the Khalil Gibran International Academy Ė an Arabic language school recently shoved into the city’s educational spotlight when students sported t-shirts blazing “Intifada NYC.”
In additional thoughts on Spitzergate, the Post is urging the state’s Ethics Commission to conduct its deliberations in public.By Courtney Gross on August 14, 2007, 11:14 am
