Behind the Headline
Will Mayor de Blasio Turn Back the School Reform Clock?
Spring 2014 | Education Next

In City Journal, Charles Sahm urges New York City major Bill de Blasio not to roll back the accountability-based, competition-driven school reforms put in place by his predecessor, Michael Bloomberg.  He writes

a close look at the record reveals undeniable improvements in school governance and respectable progress on student achievement. While New York City’s schools are far from perfect and much can be done to build upon the Bloomberg-era reforms, Mayor de Blasio and Chancellor Fariña should reflect on how far the schools have come before embarking on wholesale changes.

In the Spring 2014 issue of Education Next, Peter Meyer takes a long look at the accomplishments of the Bloomberg administration and at de Blasio’s options moving forward.
