New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg managed to find the bright side, tweeting that the curriculum (and concurrent drop in scores) would “empower students to achieve at higher levels in the years ahead,” but parents aren’t willing to take that chance with their children’s futures, and they let state education commissioner John King know it.
