NYC Schools Face Another Wave of For-Profit Field Testing as
Parents and Educators Protest Unsound Testing Policies

- DOE School Progress Reports continue to provide parents and community members with extremely limited and misleading information on the quality of education offered at an individual school. Despite widespread criticism of this reporting tool, individual school grades continue to guide decisions on school closing and other critical matters.
