New York knew some schools in its $773 million plan were doomed. They kept children in them anyway
from Education Next
New York is preparing to end its effort to turn around the city's lowest-performing schools, an effort launched in 2014, Eliza Shapiro reports in the New York Times. She notes: "Mayor Bill de Blasio promised to 'shake the foundations of New York City education' in 2014 with a new program called Renewal, a signature effort to improve the city's 94 poorest-performing schools by showering them with millions of dollars in social services and teacher training." The New York City Department of Education has been warning the mayor for years that many of the schools in the program were not meeting goals and probably never would, however, the schools have been kept open.
