A New York Daily News editorial says that scaling back on school choice and rolling back many other reforms in response to data on college-readiness would be the "worst thing the city could do."
The editorial continues, noting the options now available to New Yorkers as a result of reforms over the past decade, noting:
"Families have gained countless education options — like access to hundreds of new small, energetic schools. A study this year showed college-readiness rates at these schools is substantially higher than at the types of schools they replace.
Meantime, moms and dads have also been able to send their kids to hundreds of new charter schools, which admit the most poverty-stricken students by random lottery and post some of the strongest results in the city."
