Bloomberg: Schools Won't Close For Muslim Holidays
Mayor Michael Bloomberg says New York City's schools can't close for Muslim holidays.
The City Council is considering a nonbinding resolution on Tuesday asking the Education Department to observe Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha.
The city has the nation's largest school system. A 2008 study by Columbia University's Teachers College estimates at least 10 percent of its 1.1 million students are Muslim.
