NYC officials rip Mayor de Blasio amid school closure ‘chaos’

Public Advocate Jumaane Williams and City Councilman Mark Treyger skewered Mayor Bill de Blasio Thursday for ushering in “chaos” with the closure of city school buildings.

Arguing that City Hall and the Department of Education were unprepared for the consequences of the shuttering, both men said they’ve lost confidence in Hizzoner’s management of city schools.

“I don’t even know if furious is the right word to what we’re feeling and I know parents are feeling across this city,” Williams said during a press conference with Treyger. “With 16 hours’ notice they closed the schools. It’s unacceptable.”

Treyger warned that the ongoing upheaval would mean lasting damage for kids enrolled in the country’s largest school system.
