Dr. Pamela Cantor’s Op-Ed in Crain’s NY Business


In lead up to the New York City mayoral campaign, Dr. Cantor’s op-ed in Crain’s New York offers a few suggestions for how to turn the city’s school around.

Here is an excerpt:

“We have identified three things that lay the foundation for success: building a student support system that gets children the help they need in a community mental-health center or in school; training teachers in classroom management and instructional strategies; and strengthening leaders’ skills to drive school-wide improvement.

These efforts get schools to the point where teachers can teach and children can learn. After three to five years, most of our partner schools report higher attendance, fewer suspensions and 911 calls, and higher test scores.”
