Mayor Bill De Blasio Now Open to Keeping SHSAT Exam

New York, NY — Last week, Mayor Bill De Blasio admitted his plan to eliminate the SHSAT was flawed saying, “The attempt we made to address it was just not effective and we have to come to grips with that and I have to take responsibility for that.” The Mayor and Richard A. Carranza, Education Chancellor of New York, pushed for the removal of the SHSAT as well as Gifted and Talented Programs across the city. The Mayor’s intention was to diversify the Specialized High Schools and increase the amount of black and Hispanic students.
