This blog first reported on a Sue Edelman piece on low attendance for in-person schooling in NYC in October. Her report and information we received from teachers inspired us to write a post on how pigeons and squirrels were taking over the schools that families do not want their kids to attend in-person. We called for the best possible solution to be to improve remote learning but nobody listened.
Unfortunately, after five months, little has changed in the schools except for the name of the Chancellor. The pandemic is still with us and God willing we will be able to vaccinate our way out of it. The case numbers in NYC are still higher than when the system went temporarily full remote in November.
Fortunately for us, Sue is at it again with a front page piece cowritten by Melissa Klein exposing the Department of Education's in-person attendance figures which the DOE won't release to the public.
