New York City Schools Chancellor
Comptroller Scott Stringer’s analysis of Education Department data has found that 20 percent of New York City public schools lack any arts teachers including one out of seven middle and high schools.
New York City Schools Chancellor Carmen Farina said she feels “heartsick” over the fact that 10 public school students have committed suicide since she took office less than two months ago.
Carmen Farina stopped by a school in the Mott Haven section of the Bronx Thursday. She said there was a reason for her visit to MS 223.
The Independent Budget Office said that if summer school is eliminated, New York City could save $28 million. But Schools Chancellor Dennis Walcott doesn’t think much of that idea at all.
