Is Mayor de Blasio’s fiscal 2015 budget a departure from the more cautious path that mayors have followed since the fiscal crisis of the 1970s?

What does it all mean for the schools and the city’s fiscal future? Please join the Manhattan Institute and StudentsFirstNY for a discussion of these important questions.
