New York Education Department clarifies goals for poor-performing schools
from The New York Times
Amid growing criticism that New York City is demanding too little improvement from its lowest-performing schools, the Department of Education released a list of the education targets that schools in Mayor Bill de Blasio's $400 million School Renewal Program are expected to meet. By adding a section devoted to Renewal benchmarks to each school's official Web page, the department made its goals easily accessible for the first time. It acted after days of headlines criticizing the Renewal program, as well as questions from the state's highest-ranking education official about its rigor.
