The Center for New York City Affairs released a report called The New Marketplace: How Small-School Reforms and School Choice Have Reshaped New York City's High Schools. The report, which analyzes Chancellor Joel Klein's cornerstone initiatives, concludes that the administration created valuable new opportunities for at-risk students, but there was collateral damage. Klein's reforms created 200 new small schools and expanded high school choice, but weakened large schools attended by tens of thousands of vulnerable students at risk of dropping out. New York City's high schools have undergone a powerful transformation during the Bloomberg years. The city's education department has introduced school competition, giving families an unprecedented number of choices in the high school selection process.
