Are Some Hudson Valley Schools Failing?
There's been a lot of talk recently about education in the state of New York, common core, treatment of teachers, etc. Apparently a few schools in the Hudson Valley are being talked about too.
According to the Poughkeepsie Journal, Poughkeepsie High School and Middle School are on the failing list as a result of struggling graduation rates and student test scores. New York's new budget would allow an outside 'receiver' to come in and oversee any school that isn't making the grade. Schools on this list, which include more than 170 schools from across the state, would have 2 years to improve their performance.
