Fewer New York City students must go to school this summer
from The New York Times
Fewer students in New York City public schools have been required to attend summer school this year than in the past several years, according to data from the city's Education Department. Data from the department also shows a lower percentage of students have been held back a grade since Bill de Blasio became mayor in 2014. According to the department, about 19,000 students, or 6.2 percent of third through eighth graders, were required to attend summer school this year to proceed to the next grade. That is lower than the average over the past five years for that group, about 26,000, or 8.3 percent of students.
