NY State Releases Persistently Dangerous Schools List, Many in Bronx, Brooklyn

Thanks to Channel 12 News, here is the site for New York State's list of "Persistently Dangerous Schools."

Bronx (3), Brooklyn (2) and Harlem (2) schools predominate in the city. Middle schools appear much more than high schools. Then, more frequent than high schools are schools that are K through 5 or 8 schools (e.g., PS 194 Countee Cullen (Harlem, Manhattan), PS 12 (Weeksville, Brooklyn) and PS 11 (Highbridge, Bronx))

Yet, upstate rural towns predominate for the rest of New York State. A suburban exception to this list is Greenburgh Eleven Elementary in Dobbs Ferry. And this list includes schools carried over from previous years' lists. Schools from the older list includes schools in some very rural areas, e.g., Little Flower School in Wading River on the Long Island Sound in northeastern Suffolk County.
