StudentsFirstNY: Mayor de Blasio Fails Boys and Girls High School

"The graduating students of Boys and Girls High Schools should be saluted for their achievement, but Mayor de Blasio and his Department of Education have failed to improve this struggling school," said StudentsFirstNY Executive Director Jenny Sedlis. "Enrollment has plunged from 809 students in October to 487 by the DOE’s most recent reporting. That means roughly 40% of the students have left or have been pushed out in one year. The families in Bedford-Stuyvesant deserve a better school with high standards and quality teachers."
