Schools Proposed for Closing Compared With Other City Schools

NOTE:  Lynne Winderbaum
The motive for destruction has been apparent for a long time and now is crystal clear. As Garth Harries declared two years ago, large high schools provide the real estate for the placement of new lite schools.
Once great schools must be dismantled, discredited, destroyed. Add Kennedy to the tragic list.

IBO has compared the 25 schools slated for closing with other schools across the city. The comparisons include demographic, performance, and resource measures. The main report presents summary statistics and a Web supplement provides data on each of the schools proposed for closing. The Panel for Education Policy is scheduled to vote on the proposed closings next week.
