Senator Bill Perkins on WBAI

Four audio clips of State Sen. Bill Perkins with Basir Mchawi

Part I — Albany, 32/30 Dems in the majority; mayoral control positions explained

Part II — mayoral control as negotiated so far is effectively not yet changed; school boards elsewhere, not in NYC; no-bid contracts, consultants, and mayoral control

Part III — decreases in the numbers of black and latino educators; the increasing opposition to mayoral control

Part IV — the gathering of real data, promoting the idea of an independent Inspector General
