22. The Towns in Westchester were set up more than a century ago.
Larchmont "could" have its own school system if it changed its organization to a Town instead of a village (the NY state legislature would have to enact legislation to enable that.) By law, schools in Westchester are organized by Towns (whether their sizes have changed or not in the last century) or by cities - like Yonkers, Mount Vernon, Rye and White Plains.

Why do you think it's important that a mayor have a high school in her village? None of the mayors in Westchester County controls the schools in their city or their village: elected school boards do.

I don't know Liz Feld, and I certainly don't support her, but your issue is one of the reddest red herrings I've heard in a while.
