From New York Post:
Ted Cruz was set to talk about education and the value of charter schools Wednesday at the Bronx Lighthouse College Preparatory Academy — until the school’s largely minority student body asked the principal to cancel the event, sources told The Post.
A charter-school source said the Texas senator agreed to back out after hearing of opposition from students, parents and teachers.
“Cruz is extremely unpopular with the students and families who attend the school,” the insider said. “It would have been a mess.”
