Mayor Bloomberg wants to close as many public schools as possible in this, his last year in office.
So his Department of Education has announced that another 26 schools will close as soon as they can go through the formalities.
All of these schools have low test scores and get poor marks on the DOE’s report cards.
But they have something else in common.
Only one school on the list has more than 2% white students.
Wouldn’t you think that after more than a decade of nonstop reform that the Mayor might have figured out some improvement strategies for schools serving students of color other than closing them?
