Every year, as part of its customer service, the New York City Department of Education asks parents what they would like to see changed.
Every year since the question has been asked, parents have chosen as their top priority: Reducing class size.
In 2007, when the survey was initiated, the Mayor minimized parent concerns by lumping together all other choices as if they were one, to say that parents had many concerns.
This year, when the Department presented its slide show of the results, it left “class size” out of the slide.
The Huffington Post article linked in the first sentence is nearly an exact copy of the post on the NYC Parent blog in the second link.
Thanks to Leonie Haimson, parent advocate, who is a tiger on the subject of class size.
