My colleague Marc Epstein is at it again at Huffington. He takes on the new small high schools in NYC in his latest piece. He completely destroys the notion that everything can be reduced to data and then describes the reality of what life is like in several of our small schools.
Please read this scathing report on what is going on in NY high schools. I can verify the incidents he describes from his old building which is Jamaica.
As with most of Marc's pieces, I very much doubt it will be linked at gothamschools.org. If this was another era, investigative journalists would be all over this to find out what conditions are really like in many of our schools.
