Bloomberg Not Up in Education Polls Since Black Bounced

View Comments ()



    Mayor Bloomberg hasn't experienced a jump in the polls on the education front since Cathie Black stepped down.

    A new poll says the departure of controversial schools Chancellor Cathie Black hasn't turned things around for Mayor Michael Bloomberg's approval ratings on education.

    The Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday says that more than three-quarters of parents with children in public schools disapprove of how the mayor has handled the schools.

    Sixty-four percent of registered voters overall feel the same way, while 25 percent approve of his schools performance. The mayor's ratings were the same in March, before Black left office.

    The random telephone survey of 962 registered voters from May 4 to May 9 has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.2 percentage points.
