The city has added nine more schools to its list of school closings (last week, the city announced eight closures, including Jamaica High School) due to poor performance and graduation rates. Today, NY1 reports that the Department of Education doesn't want any more kids to enroll in "Bronx's Christopher Columbus High School and New Day Academy, Beach Channel High in Queens, Harlem Choir High School and Norman Thomas High School in Manhattan, as well as Paul Robeson High School, Metropolitan Corporate Academy, and Middle School for Academic and Social Excellence in Brooklyn." The schools will eventually be replaced by smaller ones; a Beach Channel High student said, "I can't say we're boosting performance cause all they're doing is breaking up the schools. All the kids from Beach Channel are just going to go to the new schools that are made there. So it really won't make a difference."
