Our Children OUT OF DANGER?

Following up on our recent post about P.S. 84, there was much rejoicing in the schoolyard as our lovely PTA managed to block the new charter school from opening, before they even knew anything about it.

No word yet on how they're going to address that failing school designation though.

Failing grade from the city, complete segregation, only half the neighborhood served, under 50% capacity. The math is not that complicated....

Update 2/1/07: There are pretty even-handed reports in the Daily News and the New York Sun.
