Statement from City Council Candidate Brian Fox on

End of ‘Gifted and Talented’ Program

 

October 8, 2021

 

 

“New York City just dashed the dreams of hardworking New York City families and schoolchildren, so many of them immigrants. It’s a classic example of woke ideology prevailing over common sense — and it’s outrageous.

 

“As a New York City Council Member, I will lead the effort to restore — and expand — merit-based Gifted and Talented programs.  We need greater excellence in our schools, not less.”
