School officials promise parents will see a difference in city schools
The mayor and schools chancellor say parents will find city schools have changed when classes get underway Monday, September 8.
There have been many changes made not only to the structure of the school system, but also to what is taught in the classroom. A new curriculum aimed at improving reading and math skills will be introduced. And even though teachers are now getting a crash course in the new curriculum, Schools Chancellor Joel Klein says they will be ready.
Although money problems have led to Bronx students not having enough books and inadequate resources, school officials say there will be books for every student this year. Schools will also be receiving new textbooks. And parent coordinators will be on hand in the schools to help parents with their concerns.
