Some BX kids may not find out which school they will attend for another month
The state's decision to not release its list of failing schools may mean that some Bronx kids will not know for sure where they will be going to school for at least another month.
Unlike last year the, state is planning to release the information the first week of school. Under the 'No Child Left Behind Act,' children in poor performing schools have the right to be transferred to a better performing school. But without the list parents will not know if their kids need to transferred or not until after Labor Day. Then it could be a month before the child is placed in another school.
The state determines whether or not a school is failing based on standardized test scores.
