The Numbers Don't Lie: Why New York City School Closings are Justified. Issue Brief No. 8
Winters, Marcus
Manhattan Institute for Policy Research
New York City's leading teachers' union signaled that it will not give up its fight to keep the city from closing bad schools. The Department of Education administers voluntary surveys to parents and teachers in each of its public and charter schools. The results of these surveys account for about 10 percent of the accountability score used to grade schools from "A" to "F" each year. The table presented in this Issue Brief reports the answers of city parents and teachers to some pertinent questions about the quality of their schools. The table juxtaposes survey answers from the twenty-six schools designated for closure with those from all other city schools. (Contains 1 table and 4 endnotes.)
