By removing the standards, you're going to bring down the performance of the entire system. The disruptive kids, who are very difficult to remove, will take attention away from the teacher who is already dealing with an overcrowded classroom. Extra hand holding will be needed which will also prevent the teacher from taking the performing kids further.

Bottom line: it will become almost impossible for any student to obtain a high level education in the public system

Racism against white and asian students who excel is in full effect. But these kids will continue to excel in life regardless. Why? They have a mom and dad at home who make them accountable - and they happen to be smart kids anyway.

Quotas don't work in the real world, especially in money making corporate America. The only color that counts is green. Someday these poor little kids that are being forced into smart classrooms will unfortunately have to realize this the hard way. They can thank the DiBlasio's of the world for putting them at a disadvantage.

And I don't feel a bit of sympathy for the those people who voted for him but who's kids worked hard enough to get into one of these schools.

You wanted a hardcore far left liberal...well you got em'. Socialism/Communism sounded good in your textbooks...but seeing it played out in your own backyard is a whole different story aint it?

Not only will he keep your kids out of the schools that you pay taxes for and stayed involved with to make it a top tier institution...but he's gonna now make you pay for someone elses kid to attend it.

Don't like it? Oh well...you voted for it, now enjoy it.

Socialism doesn't work. We know that throughout life, those who get carried eventually will get the harsh realities. Take any competitive sport, if you get carried you'll get exposed on the field.

Society today is ultra competitive, there are no shortcuts. The higher you go the more competitive the landscape gets and many students that worked their butts off will get what they deserve regardless how insane the mayor is.

I think specialized schools are overrated today because the real education is what students does after school. Those parents that send their kids to prep school and tutoring to get ahead. There's a reason why the specialized schools only feature a certain ethnicity because they've invest much more in education outside of class. Tiger moms are more important than having specialized school education.

Yeah. Like someone already said, let DeBlasio do whatever he wants. The kids who study hard, have involved parents, and engage in extracurricular activities and sports will excel no matter what. Schools are just means, ultimately it's the individual student & how much drive, determination, ambition and talent he/she has that will determine their level of success. Throw in a little luck.

Let DeBlasio dismantle everything. The kids will be alright.

Serves them right; all those liberal, progressive, democrats in Park Slope and surrounding areas voted for the current egit de Blasio and loony city council. Now there're going to get what's coming to them.

You're right.

The ones who never carry but, are always getting carried, will just eventually get dropped.
