How about that: The New York Times this week truly ran a fairly balanced news story on town’s constitution colleges — one among a number of stories which have departed from the lefty line . . . since Election Day.
The account famous that charters “sometimes outperform district colleges in math and studying on state standardized assessments,” that “the overwhelming majority of scholars in charters are Black and Latino” and that “households in New York have clamored for extra entry to charters.” More: “Most Democratic lawmakers stay firmly against permitting any enlargement of the faculties,” however academics’ unions, as “main political gamers,” are a key stumbling block.
Amazing: The paper’s public-education reporting normally focuses solely on the claims of constitution haters.
Other current remarkable-for-the-Times tales embrace a belated account of the horrific (pre-election) Hudson River Park rape and even cautionary news that “considerations are rising amongst some medical professionals concerning the penalties” of puberty-blocking hormones for teenagers ID’ing as transgender, a narrative that even cites “rising proof of potential hurt.”
We don’t know what number of of those items have been truly able to roll earlier than Times readers voted, or if the Gray Lady’s editors solely dared give reporters the go-ahead as a result of the paper’s monumental “you may’t say that” crowd was in a post-election torpor.
Or maybe (can or not it’s?) a number of courageous souls at Times have instantly determined to actually publish “all of the information that’s match to print.” Either manner, we welcome it.
