Courtesy of the Campaign for Better Schools, here are a couple of pictures of the scene at Queens Borough Hall right now, where the first Assembly education committee hearing on mayoral control is underway. Zakiyah Ansari, a campaign organizer, reports that the room is “packed to the roof” with about 200 people. The Campaign for Better Schools, a coalition of community groups, has not yet formally unveiled its position on the mayoral control law; campaign leaders say that will happen soon.
