Albany Tables Bill to End Specialized High School Test
An announcement by New York State Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie who said in a statement that he planned come up with a plan to address all minority groups’ concerns about testing for the speciality high schools. Despite that, critics say Mayor Bill de Blasio’s push for changes to specialized high schools is disingenuous, having been introduced in the waning days of the current legislative session. "It was politically easier for him to just give it to the legislature and blame the legislature for not passing his bill,” said The Graduate Center, CUNY’s David Bloomfield.
