Democratic Senator Schumer's Republican challenger says he'll be more vocal about championing charter schools
"Education hasn’t been a big topic in the Senate Race between Schumer and his Republican challenger, Jay Townsend. “I would be much more vocal in championing charter schools than Mr. Schumer has been,” Townsend said in response to emailed questions. “I believe that too many young kids are trapped in failing public schools.”
