So, Turnaround for Children Inc. likes to tout its success stories?
Well, in its NYC “partner schools,” Turnaround is now wearing a dunce’s cap.
City students’ scores take dramatic plunge after new standardized tests
If you want an example of just how badly Turnaround for Children Inc. fares in its “partner schools” in NYC, all you need is one random sampling.
Take the M.S. 242 Mott Hall V school in the Bronx – please.
Just look at how badly the kids did on the latest tests in a school in which Turnaround for Children Inc. is touting its excellent results:
How ’bout that Pamela Cantor?
(Cantor is the self-aggrandizing president of Turnaround for Children Inc.)
Did I say you need only one random sample?
How unrepresentative of me!
I just found a second random sample, also from the Bronx.
P.S. 32, where Cantor claims unbridled proficiency success, is a disaster:
If the Bronx examples weren’t bad enough, take this school in Manhattan – please.
It’s even worse:
And here now is another abysmal failure in Manhattan, thanks to Robinhood Foundation funding.
(Robinhood Foundation, which has given Turnaround for Children Inc. more than $1 million to “reach” kids in NYC, got a complete pass from 60 Minutes, which claimed in its latest rerun that Robinhood turned around the test scores in NYC.)
NOTHING could be further from the truth:
Oh, OK, so you want an example of proficiency in what, Queens?
Here’s our third random sample – the Collaborative Arts Middle School:
So, there you have it, a representative sample of Turnaround for Children Inc.’s “successes” in the nation’s largest school districts.
Turnaround for Children, Inc. strives to fulfill the promise of public education by helping high-poverty, low-performing public schools create positive learning environments that foster healthy intellectual, social, and emotional growth in every student.
So, disastrous test results in Turnaround’s partner schools in NYC?
Is that what we call “Mission Accomplished?”
