School Closings – media’s feeling numb?

December 9, 2009 am31 2:24 am

[Update – a media outlet wrote to say that the DoE made no announcements yesterday, and would not even confirm what everyone already knew. -jd]

Eight last week. Nine Monday. Overload?

Alfred E Smith was announced today. And one of the little schools that replaced Monroe. That’s the Bronx, my balliwick. Who else in other boroughs? I dunno.

But nothing on Gotham Schools. Not in the Daily News. Post. Forget the Times. NY1. 880. I give up.

If the evil is repeated enough, will we stop paying attention? That’s what Bloomberg and Klein are hoping for. Let’s make sure they are wrong.

    Maybe people are just dizzy. After all, they’re talking about replacing replacement schools, the ones they created to replace the schools that needed replacement, and now that they’re replacing the replacements, soon they’ll replace the replacements for the replacements, and the only constant is that none of the alleged failures are their fault, no matter what.
