Beth Fertig, WNYC's education reporter and contributor to SchoolBook, looks at Chancellor Walcott's first year and other education news.
I'm not a parent and don't have kids, though I certainly help pay for the schools. But what I don't understand is why parents (even kids) would object so much to closing ineffective schools and starting over? I just don't get it.
Very important: has Walcott made any more waffles for students since his first day on the job?
