“Violence in the city’s schools has soared to its highest levels in at least a decade — even as Mayor Bill de Blasio tells New Yorkers schools are safer.
This month, the mayor hailed a 29 percent drop in school crime since the 2010-11 academic year. That now looks like a carefully misleading statistic.
On Thursday, Families for Excellent Schools used state data to highlight actual trends in city schools. The number of violent incidents shot up a whopping 23 percent last year (the first full year under Mayor de Blasio) — from 12,978 to 15,934.”
