it is a well-worn mantra of republican education policy: local control of schools is best. so the gop applause was loud last week when president trump issued an executive order demanding a review of regulations to dial back federal overreach. state senate majority leader john flanagan, a good republican, warbles from the same songsheet. a few years ago, as the state stood ready to step into the chronically mismanaged east ramapo school district, he said: “when we move in any way shape or form to usurp local control, we have to be extraordinarily judicious.” it turns out, flanagan doesn’t believe in local control. he just wields it cynically as a weapon. flanagan and fellow senate republicans to this day refuse to give mayor de blasio the management authority he deserves over the scho...

kbb editors' overviewby matt degen like other vehicles in volkswagen's 2017 lineup, the jetta compact sedan returns with something of a limp. that's because, as with other models, the once-desirable diesel models are not being offered in the wake of the german automaker's emissions-cheating scandal. vw optimistically says the jetta's trim lineup has been "simplified," with the former hybrid model also being shown the door. still, what remains has some appeal. all 2017 jettas are powered by turbocharged 4-cylinder gasoline engines, ranging from a small 1.4-liter in lower models to the potent 210-horsepower 2.0-liter in the performance-oriented jetta gli. the jetta stands out from rivals like the venerable toyota corolla and honda civic with european character and spry manners, but its uphil...
