When announcing the results of this year’s NYC School Survey, Chancellor Richard Carranza said:
“The School Survey reflects our continued partnership with students, teachers, and families to improve our City’s schools. Our community feels positively and passionately about the state of our schools, and their feedback on research-driven survey questions has to drive our work. It’s foundational to making New York City the fairest and best urban school system in the country.”
