Deceptive education advertising
A Bill is under way in Albany called "last in, first out" law. Although the Mayor of NYC Schools Michael Bloomberg aggressively has pursued the changes in state law, the others in the 5 big school districts--- Yonkers, Syracuse, Rochester and Buffalo with the highest enrollment of minorities students, jumping on the bandwagon as well. Some fear it deprives children in these schools of veteran teachers. Viewed as racist, the bill exacerbates inequality in educational opportunity.
