New York City Schools chancellor rethinks Bronx, city school system
Bronx students could see some major changes to their schools as the Bloomberg administration asks what improvements should be made in the classrooms. According to the New York Times, New York City Schools Chancellor Joel Klein is working with consulting firms and education experts to see where improvements are needed. The team is asking everything from how textbooks are bought to how principals and teachers are evaluated. Critics say the mayor and chancellor are wasting their time and money and should focus instead on interactions inside the classrooms.
