New York Post New legislation would force DOE to release school health care information by Selim Algar
A City Councilman wants the Department of Education to spell out which schools are providing healthcare support to their students.
Councilman Ben Kallos is re-introducing legislation this week that would compel the DOE to reveal which schools offer services like vision care and HPV vaccines.
“We should know exactly which health services are available to which public schools so that we can ensure all 1.1 million public school students have access to the health services they need,” Kallos said.
The Manhattan Democrat said the DOE has not been adequately transparent about healthcare resources in city school buildings and should be legally obligated to do so.
