NYC Charter Schools to Receive State Grant for Partnerships with Public Schools

A state grant of $4.5 million will enable NYC charter schools to share best practices with traditional public schools.

The New York Daily News reports on the new initiative:

“We should all work together, because we all have the same goals,” said Bronx Charter School for Excellence leader Charlene Reid, who is collaborating with educators at nearby Public School 85. More than 86% of students at Reid’s school passed state reading exams in 2012, compared with just over 20% of students who met literacy standards at PS 85.
