City To Release Plan Bringing Struggling Students To UWS Schools

June 20, 2018 - 10:04 am

NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- The city is expected to release a plan that would set aside seats in middle schools on the Upper West Side for struggling students in a push to diversify those schools.

The plan has been controversial.

The Wall Street Journal reports, 25 percent of seats would go to low income, low performing students.

Some parents have expressed worry that their children will be shut out of the most sought-after schools.

Schools Chancellor Richard Carranza will attend a meeting of the Panel For Education Policy on Wednesday night, and the issue is likely to come up.
