The effort to improve the poorly performing middle school students has started years ago and it remains a continuous drive. Modification of educational strategies is what New York City aims for. To help middle schools in a better way, the focus will be set on enhancing the reading and writing skills of students at middle schools. The plan, started in 2008, now enters the second phase of a campaign. This is done by the City Council and Education Department to support the performance of students. The total of 51 lowest performing middle schools was produced, and after 3 years, the council and the department took the appropriate approach and moved forward to a new batch of eighteen middle schools. The teachers will be trained for their literacy instruction for the students who read at a 3rd or 4th grade level.
