On April 26, a New York City board will vote for a possibility of closing some educational institutions. This idea was offered by Educational Department of the city. The schools will be open again in autumn with new teachers, but with the same students.
The first version of plan proposed in January was aimed at bypassing negotiations with the city’s teachers’ union that appeared to be stalled. According to the plan, the city’s teachers’ union required about $60 million in federal grants for a new teacher evaluation system.
