More than 140 New York City elementary and middle schools had at least one grade where more than 90 percent of kids flunked their state exams last academic year, according to a Post analysis. A total of 23 schools had at least one entire class where not a single student passed a math or ­English proficiency test given annually to kids in grades 3 to 8.(Snip) With many of the city’s lowest-performing schools spending in excess of $30,000 annually per student, Chu called for urgent scrutiny of the Department of ­Education. “What exactly is being taught in these classrooms?” she asked.

Comments:

Public schools serve to consume tax dollars and to provide easy, high-paid jobs to unionized Marxists who instill their ideology in future generations of Democrat voters, with the long-term goal of eradicating what remains of traditional US culture and values. It's almost quaint how the school parental advisory panel member thinks anything useful at all is being taught in the classroom.

I know just what the Dems will do to fix this! They'll vote to RAISE TAXES and INCREASE SPENDING in the Dept. of Ed., so they can they skim even more money off the books for themselves. The kids, you say? Well, what about them? The Dems want these kids to be blithering idiots so the can a) keep voting Democrat and b) become even more dependent upon the state.

A high school student posted on YouTube that each day the class watches either VICE or The Young Turks for an hour. Give. Me. Strength. I thank God that my grandsons in high school now have never watched tv and are homeschooled.

Chaos is taking place in the classroom. That is the answer. There is no time for learning. And Barack Obola's executive order, issued July 26, 2012, titled On The Education Of African American Students, created a quota system for discipline.

Here in Texas, if a school has a failing grade for more than two years in a row the state takes control from the elected school board and administrators and manages the school. In New York that would likely only worsen matters.

NYC has a myriad of fine private schools. Our area has an excellent public school system. New Yorkers, please don't move here. However, anyone with children in the public system there should get their children into one of the private schools. Now, about this place, even with great schools, great teachers, and outstanding students our family's kids always have their OWN reading group of ONE CHILD ~ them ~ in the primary grades, and by Highschool they usually are allowed to continue independent study in the library pursuing any books or other resources there. Failure to get a top score (within 5 points of perfection) on the SAT or other standard tests is just unknown around our house. Same with LSAT, and GRE later on in life. The eldest grand daughter just the other day told us "school is for socialization".... so we told her to double up on her more difficult reading, and BTW here's a 3" thick dictionary to learn to use! Bwahahahahaha! We use the OED as a good substitute for corporate news ~ but it's still a tad heavy for the young ones.

Prime areas where GOP should be sending the message that the current representatives aren't doing anything to improve their opportunities. Don't bring up vouchers either, but simply remind them that Democrats aren't looking to improve things.

Lol, you're talking about NYC. A city run by democrats. These poor kids are on the democratic plantation where they don't want kids to succeed. The dumber you are the greater the chance you''ll vote democratic. Why do you think democrats are against charter schools, school choice and voucher programs. They don't want your kids educated. Its a damn shame that these kids parents still don't get it. They sacrifice their kids future to vote for these communists. The sickening part is, they have a communist mayor who brags about it,. Wake up. Got it.

Here's a question for all you Christians out there, What are you going to say to your God on the day of judgement when he ask's you why you sent the most precious gift he could give you to the devil to be educated, sorry, indoctrinated. If memory serves me correctly, that is a responsibility of parents according to that book you say you believe in. Just asking!

Five current and former public officials and political candidates were charged Thursday with taking thousands of dollars in bribes disguised as campaign contributions, in return for hiring an unnamed tax attorney for lucrative legal work.

The American Civil Liberties Union is asking that men's restrooms now include tampons and other menstrual products to push back against sex discrimination for 'every person' who menstruates. The ACLU released a statement on Tuesday presenting their argument for accessible menstrual products in men's bathrooms to fully accommodate transgender and non-binary people. 'While free menstrual products are not uniformly provided in women’s restrooms, they are almost never available in men’s restrooms, even for pay,' the statement read. 'Men’s restrooms are also less likely to have a place to dispose of these products conveniently, privately, and hygienically.' ACLU also pointed out that men's homeless

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) launched the debate over the impeachment of President Donald Trump on Wednesday by comparing the Democrats’ struggle to remove him from office to the Battle of the Bulge against Nazi Germany in World War II. Described as “Hitler’s Last Gamble,” the battle began in December 1944, when the Nazis sent 200,000 troops into a surprise attack against American forces. Though the Americans prevailed, 100,000 were killed or wounded over two months of fighting. Pelosi drew an analogy between the impeachment debate and that battle, the largest ever fought by the U.S. Army:

Could I guarantee he won't have issues for the next four years? He has a lot of issues that are just sort of sitting there.”A three-page letter from Biden’s physician concluded the former vice president is a “healthy, vigorous, 77-year-old” that is fit to be president.

As they prepare for their final battle against the galaxy’s forces of evil, the characters in The Rise of Skywalker remind each other several times that if this doesn’t work, everything that’s come before—everything they’ve fought for, everything they’ve been through—will all count for nothing. You could say the same of the movie itself. We can debate the importance of final chapters, whether they really have, or should have, the power to elevate or invalidate everything that came before them—and though the ninth episode in this generation-spanning story has been advertised with the promise that “The Saga Will End,” that’s a promise that has been made and broken before.
