NYC to Give Money to Underperforming Schools

Last year New York State raised the bar on their state exams, and the city wants to help underperforming schools catch up.

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has announced a $10 million dollar plan to help low performing elementary and middle schools.  The money will go to 532 schools where more than two-thirds of the students performed below grade level on last year’s english and math proficiency exams.
