DOE Officials Mark Total Of 47 Schools For Closure

By: NY1 News
The list of struggling city public schools facing possible closure has more than doubled to 47.
The Department of Education has just added 28 new names to the list, including 15 additional high schools, six additional middle schools and seven charter schools.

Most of the new additions are in the Bronx.

That number comes on top of the 20 struggling elementary and middle schools that were slated for closure in September.

Last school year, DOE officials also considered closing 47 schools. Of those schools, one in the Bronx and four in Brooklyn are once again on the chopping block this year.
