State math exam results show some BX students don't make the grade

The results of the state math exam have been released and Bronx students are at the bottom of the list in the city. The worst results came from eighth-graders at Henry Lou Gehrig Junior High School, with only 5 percent of the class passing at grade level.

He says there needs to be smaller class sizes and less turnover for Bronx teachers so students get the education they deserve.
