From the Daily News:
Earlier in the day, the mayor sarcastically lashed out at waitlist complaints.
"They complained about a couple of hundred kids not being able to get into the schools that they wanted to get into," he said.
"I can tell you how to fix that: just lower the quality of the schools," he said. "Isn't it wonderful that kids want to get into schools?"
Told of the mayor's mocking, Sal Browne, a mother of two at Public School 116 in Murray Hill and toddler twins said, "That's the most absurd thing I have ever heard."
"This is not something to be shrugging off and joking about and saying this problem isn't really a problem," she said.
