Fixing Failing Schools?


Fixing Failing Schools?
Back in 2003, Mayor Bloomberg created the New York City Leadership Academy, a privately funded, multi-million dollar effort to train new principals. That year, New York Voices began a multi-part documentary following several aspiring principals from their training at the Academy through their first year on the job.
