    We had a friend who was 12 and got in. You never know. Particularly in light of the DOE’s recent announcement there may be a flight of people.

    Are they serious about canceling the gnt program? What happens to the existing program if they cancel it? Could someone explain it to me please?

    It was proposed - up to De Blasio to decide. But he has the power to make the change and Carranza’s stance was always anti GT.

    I read that current classes would go on but they just wouldn't add any new ones. So it would be phased out by attrition.

    Yes it would be done over 5 year period. Instead schools would reflect demographics of neighborhoods and magnet schools would be developed inclusive of students with varying student abilities but focused on specific areas (eg a tech focused or science focused).

    Right, which is equivalent to no kids getting a quality education instead of some. You know fools are in charge when every time there is a problem their solution is to lower the standards.

    Everyone who cares about these programs should call their City Council members today.

    An excellent education in NYC shouldn't be only available to families who can afford private schools. Making the demographics "reflective of their communities" means that all the kids in Staten Island and District 2, who are already in wealthy, well-off communities, which have the bulk of the G&T programs anyway will either opt out of the public school system, or else attend their local, excellent gen ed programs, and this will have no impact on de-segregating the school system.

    Replacing the G&T programs with "magnet" programs specialized in one area or another doesn't address the need for rigorous, well-rounded education, and misses the point of the G&Ts. Existing Gen Ed programs don't have the resources and the will to provide differentiated education, and there's no reason to believe that would change with this proposed change in policy.
