    Ask the Mayor: Schools Reopening, Police Oversight, More

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio takes calls from listeners and discusses this week in NYC, including his new proposal for a partial in-person learning model in which students would attend school on site part of the week and attend remote learning on the other days of the week, plus the NYS AG's proposal for police oversight.

    “idiotic,” de Blasio tells @BrianLehrer of analysis that he is afraid of police unions. Mayor says sometimes he sees the political discourse in this town & just scratches his head. Says police unions opposed him in 2013 & 2017 elex & all along the way, & he’s moved NYPD reforms.

    "I don't live in the world of elites, elite institutions, I never have..." @NYCMayor says on @BrianLehrer. He was asked about city's longterm recovery.

    He says spending a day out in the city's neighborhoods will encourage people.

    "We can come back from anything"
