The Center for New York City Affairs presents:

Putting Principals to the Test:
Transforming NYC Schools in the Age of Data-Driven Accountability


The Bloomberg administration has introduced a radical new system of school management, giving principals more freedom in exchange for the promise of better test scores and graduation rates. Crucial to this are new test-based accountability systems, which focus attention on struggling learners. But the traditional oversight by superintendents is gone. Does this strategy build better schools? What has been gained, lost and learned? And what does the future hold?

At the forum, the Center for New York City Affairs will release a new report analyzing these influential and controversial reforms.

Introductory remarks by
Merryl Tisch, Chancellor, New York State Board of Regents

Ms. Tisch will then join in a discussion with:
