Grading New York City’s Schools

Isn’t receiving a grade of an F bad thing? In 2006 New York City–the largest school district in the United States–adopted a progress report system grading city schools from A to F. This program remains controversial. Hear opinions from Marcus Winters, Senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute; Jonah Rockoff, Faculty Research Fellow at the National Bureau of Economic Research; Jim Lieberman, Chief Accountability Officer of the Department of Education; and Howard Husock, Vice President of Policy Research and the Director of the Manhattan Institute’s Social Entrepreneurship Initiative. This event was held by the Manhattan Institute.

    Hi everyone, just moved to nyc from nashville and i’m a little bit overwhelmed by the size and how busy this new town is. I was wondering if there are any guys that are looking to show a new woman around in town. Im not really looking for a relationship or anything, kinda just a buddy to go out and have fun with.

    Send me an email if your interested:

    Hey all. I’ve just moved into Selly Oak and I’m finding it very difficult to settle in. I moved from Toronto (Canada) to take a new job, the problem is I don’t know anybody, I don’t know the area and I feel very homesick. Since I go here I have been stuck in the house on the evenings and weekends.

    I’m a single 36 year old, and I’m ideally looking for a warm hearted guy for companionship and friendship.

    Anyone that’s interested feel free to email me at:
