Yes, that article shows (even if editorially disguised) that for the rich,
the mayoral election is all about the destruction of public education and
the teachers union.  This piece is on Eric Adams, from *New York Magazine*,
13 June:

"Over the weekend, a video
<https://twitter.com/ZachandMattShow/status/1403437549025173508> from
February reemerged in which the Brooklyn Borough President [Eric Adams]
claimed that Zoom could allow for year-round classes in the city, an idea
he described as mandatory
<https://www.politico.com/states/new-york/city-hall/story/2021/01/04/eric-adams-proposes-keeping-schools-in-session-year-round-1352345>
in
January. He also suggested that massive class sizes could help make the
idea a reality. “If you do a full-year school year by using the new
technology of remote learning, you don’t need children to be in a school
building with a number of teachers,” Adams said at a meeting of the Citizens
Budget Commission <https://cbcny.org/newsroom/managing-nycs-fiscal-crisis>.
“It’s just the opposite. You could have one great teacher that’s in one of
our specialized high schools to teach three to 400 students who are
struggling in math, with the skillful way that they’re able to teach.”

The real estate moguls, venture capitalists, and hedge-fund managers heard
that and the money gates opened for Adams just as they had for Yang. One
teacher to 300 or 400 students . . . the dream of the penthouse and
townhouse set. Then they can start a campaign to fire that teacher for
tweeting something about Palestine . . .

Who Are the Billionaires’ Picks for New York Mayor? Follow the Money.

Ultrawealthy donors have given $16 million to super PACs dedicated to the
New York City mayor’s race. Half of that money has gone to three moderate
candidates.
