This is a very sad, but powerful story about the abandonment of schools that suffered from the reformer conceit that low scores=bad schools. Jamaica HS in its final years was serving the neediest of the city's students; it was put to death by the authorities. Jamaica High School was long considered one of the best high schools in New York City in the 1980s. The school that once enrolled over 3,000 students held its last graduation ceremony in 2014, with a graduating class of only 24 students.As the city adopted reform after reform, the school went from an integrated model to a highly segregated school;. Other schools lured away top-achieving students. When the Bloomberg-Klein regime took over, Jamaica's days were numbered. Don't miss school 'reform' in action.
