Parents will get the results of their child's new common core standardized tests this week. NYC schools chancellor Dennis Walcott and chief academic officer Shael Polakow-Suransky talk about how to interpret the (probably lower) scores.  Plus, a new study from MRDC found gains in graduation rates from the "small schools" strategy favored by Mayor Bloomberg.
