Mayor Bloomberg's School Success
Math scores are up. I just hate it. I've thought that Mayor Bloomberg's policies on NYC schools utterly deplorable and I've deplored them. That said, the results of statewide math tests show that NYC children are doing better. There are some reasons to think a portion of the increased math scores is an artifact of the testing and some reason to credit past curriculum changes. However, these increases are significant as I read the data and the Mayor and Chancellor Klein deserve credit for them. I hate having written that. Review the data yourself here .
