Parents say lack of a math teacher at I.S. 192 is hurting their kids' futures

Parents of eighth-graders at I.S. 192 say their kids have no permanent math teacher.

Since the start of the school year, parents say their kids have had a handful of math teachers come and go. They say their kids need a permanent teacher that's qualified to help them prepare for the standardized tests next year.

So far this year, the students have had no homework and have taken no tests according to parents. They say school officials have told them that all of the kids will receive a grade of 65 for the first quarter because they realize they are at fault.

But, the Department of Education says all students did not get scores of 65. The Department says 120 Bronx students are affected by the math teacher shortage.

Region 2 Superintendent Laura Rodriquez says she will look into the grading policy. She adds that there is a plan of action in place to resolve the problem.
