by Chester E. Finn Jr.via EducationNext
Wednesday, December 4, 2019

When the New York City Council moved the other day to require every one of the city’s thirty-two community school districts to develop a school desegregation plan, it was advancing a major initiative by Mayor Bill de Blasio, his schools chancellor Richard Carranza, and a sprawling advisory panel, all of them committed to rooting out every form of selectivity and “disparate impact” in the offerings of the country’s biggest public school system.

by Michael J. Petrillivia Flypaper (Fordham Education Blog)
Tuesday, December 3, 2019
