Judge rules that state Controller Thomas DiNapoli cannot audit charter schools
Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Thomas Breslin ruled DiNapoli did not have authority to audit any New York charter school.
NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
New York charter schools won a big victory Thursday when a judge ruled the state’s top fiscal officer can’t follow the money and look at their books.
Charter school crusader Eva Moskowitz filed suit to bar state Controller Thomas DiNapoli from auditing her 22 schools, all of which are publicly funded but also receive private donations. On Thursday, Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Thomas Breslin ruled DiNapoli did not have the authority to audit any New York charter because the schools are not technically “units of the state.”
“We are disappointed that the court struck down the law authorizing the Comptroller’s office to audit charter schools,” said DiNapoli spokesman Matt Sweeney. He added an appeal is under consideration.
Other cities, such as Los Angeles and Chicago, have rules allowing charters to be audited. In New York, the schools are required to hire independent auditors.
Mayor de Blasio recently set off a firestorm when he refused to allow three of Moskowitz’s charters to co-locate in public schools. She and her well-financed supporters have launched a campaign to reverse his decision.
