More Questions on City's School Grades
We pointed out yesterday that the improved Progress Report grades given to many public schools this week were not universally seen as totally legit. The Brooklyn Eagle is also questioning the "bizarre disconnect between the city’s Progress Reports and actual school accomplishment." Schools with high state scores, test results, and local reputations, such as P.S. 8 in Brooklyn Heights, got a "F," the paper reports, while some evidently underperforming schools got improved grades.
How you look at it may depend on how your local school was graded. GerritsenBeach.net is delighted with the "A" grade PS 277 received, and proudly displays its Report Card on its virtual fridge.
High School Progress Report grades are pending. You can look up elementary, middle, and K-8 school grades up here.
