Hemphill on ed reform: DOE "risks losing support"

Bloomberg and Klein's reforms have been on the right track, but the DOE's upcoming reorganization could undermine recent gains, Insideschools founder Clara Hemphill told University of Chicago alums at an event Wednesday evening.

Hemphill said Mayor Bloomberg and Chancellor Klein have implemented some positive changes, noting the increase in teachers salaries and regional consolidation of some of New York's worst districts with some of its best. She said Bloomberg has been "substantially better than previous administrations" when it comes to education, citing his and Klein's attitude that "public education was salvageable and worth saving" as an improvement.
