NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Some New York public school teachers are heading back to the classroom this September.

Teachers and staff from eight top-performing charter schools across the city are going to share their tricks of the trade with some district schools.

Public school parents have clashed with the publicly funded, privately run charter schools over resources.

The New York Daily News reports charter schools traditionally outperform public school schools on standardized test scores.

However, critics say it’s an unfair comparison because charter schools serve fewer kids.

The lesson plan will also include some assignments for charters.

P.S. 85 in the Bronx will teach how to build stronger relationships with the community and parents.

The program is being paid for with a $4.5 million state grant and will start this fall.
