NYC DOE Releases A List of 17 Schools Which Will Be Closed

17 New York City schools targeted for closing

Updated at 11:05 PM today
There are 17 schools that the Department of Education say have not make the grade, and there may be more that are added to the list - that includes schools in 4 of the city's five boroughs.
In Manhattan there are four schools on the list - there are also five in the Bronx, six in Brooklyn and two in Queens.
Deputy School's Chancellor Marc Sternberg released a statement saying,
"We expect success. After a rigorous review of academic performance, we're proposing to phase out a select number of low-performing schools."Officials say the proposals that are being made are the result of a thorough evaluation of each school's record. They believe that now is the time to take action.
However, when you talk to representatives of the Teacher's Union, the lesson plan is different.
