We've had our turn. Now it's yours. What do you think Mayor-elect de Blasio should do to continue, strengthen (or terminate, if that's your angle) the Young Men's Initiative?
The New York Post follows up on a story we ran last year about the lucrative world of school food contracting.
By limiting enrollment—and therefore eliminating the schools' commitment to accept all neighborhood kids who wanted to come—DOE says it will improve students' options.
City Limits offers its take on the mayor's complex education legacy in this homage to the old-fashioned school filmstrip—complete with corny narration and, yes, the beep.

The release of New York City's teacher data reports has triggered a flurry of coverage on the numbers and the teachers singled out as ranking high or low. Here's some background on what the numbers mean—and what they don't

Schools on the new DOE closure list serve more low-income, special ed and English-learning students than the system as a whole. Is the city simply fighting for poor kids to get the best, or applying unfair expectations in a way that disrupts students' lives?
The DOE's report cards are out for high schools. Amid higher standards, fewer schools notched the highest grades. With graduation criteria about to tighten, what do the numbers bode for the class of 2012 and beyond?
In a letter this summer to the judge overseeing Raj Rajaratnam's sentencing, the head of the Harlem Children's Zone suggested that community service would do more good than hard time.
