Description/Abstract: Now here we are again. Only this year, as the legislature yawns and stretches and does its best to look lifelike, Albany isn't simply weighing the components of yet another first-aid kit for the city's eternal budget emergencies. Not this time. Rather, the state is facing a court order to devise a funding system by July 30 that will allow city schools to give their students a quality education. As a poll-challenged pol who has asked New Yorkers to judge him on the basis of his education reforms, Bloomberg has a tremendous amount riding on what Albany's ultimately does.
