Fewer high schools got A's from the city on their annual report cards, and more got D's. The city says that's partly because the state is raising graduation standards.

Meanwhile, as WNYC's Beth Fertig reports, the city says it's too soon to tell if extra federal grants made a difference at 11 failing schools. The 2011 school progress report grades for all New York City public high schools are now on the schools’ pages on SchoolBook.
