More children are being squeezed into classrooms this year, with 3,500 classes already recorded that are over the contractual limits for middle and high schools, the Daily News reports. Fewer city schools are on the "persistently dangerous" list this year, down to 9 from 12, according to the New York Post. A Brooklyn school honors 9/11 victims today.
