Update on struggling schools scandal and our C4E comments

August 17, 2015

Dear Friends,

I wanted to bring to your attention to a piece I wrote in today’s Gotham Gazette, that puts the recent credit recovery scandals in context and proposes an alternative vision for NYC struggling schools. Please take a look and let me know what you think!

Saturday was the deadline for comments on the DOE’s Contract for Excellence/class size reduction proposal.  I sent in our petition, with more than 680 signatures and many comments. Thanks if you were part of this effort. I will also share the full list of signers with the new State Commissioner and the Board of Regents, in the hope they will take seriously their oversight responsibilities, and ensure that NYC schools embark on a real plan to reduce class sizes — starting first in our neediest schools.

Thanks as ever for your support,

Leonie Haimson
