Part II: Diversifying New York City's Specialized High Schools


The Mayor's proposal to eliminate the SHSAT and rely on students' 7th grade GPAs and scores on State exams has met with both resistance and praise. EdCast examines the effects of these changes from the perspective of the Asian-American community and from a teacher at a specialized high school who welcomes changes in the admissions process.

Guests: Shino Tanikawa, School Integration Advocate;  Jonathan Halabi, Math Teacher, High School for American Studies at Lehman College.
