Bill de Blasio humiliated as truth about NYC public schools exposed



Facing failure in New York City’s public schools, radical Mayor Bill de Blasio initiated a program of Renewal Schools and pumped over $400 million into turning around failing schools.

The mayor, an ideological leftist, put down charter schools at the same time that he was advancing his Renewal Schools agenda.

Now the results are in: Charter schools are a huge success while de Blasio’s Renewal Schools are a total failure.

The difference between the two systems is largely that the teachers’ union contract applies in Renewal but not in charter schools.

Free to pay teachers based on performance, dismiss bad teachers, adjust work rules and raise standards, charter schools are winning the competition … by a lot.

Average per-pupil spending at Renewal Schools is $30,355 while at Success Academy Charter Schools, it is $18,264.

But while only 8.3 percent of Renewal students pass standardized math tests and 12.4 percent pass English exams, the comparable rates for Success Charters are 81.3 percent in math and 95.6 percent in English.

Citywide, only 41 percent of public school students pass English tests and 38 percent pass the math test, less than half the passing rates at Success Academy.
