The fate of 10 public schools in The City that made the state’s persistently lowest-performing list will be a topic for discussion at a Board of Education meeting Tuesday.
Schools that made the list are forced to choose from a short list of draconian reform measures. The reform options include sacking the principal and staff, outright closure or becoming a charter school.
The schools will receive government funding to implement the reforms.
The jobs of principals at five schools are protected since they have been at their posts for less than two years. Principals at the other schools, however, are on the chopping block and parents at some of those schools have been vocal at recent board meetings about keeping them.
