78 new schools will open in New York City

New York City says it will open 78 new schools in 2013-2014. The schools will open with nearly 10,000 students and serve more than 32,000 students when they grow to full capacity. The new schools include seven career and technical education schools, as well as two high schools for students in grades 9 through 14 that—through a partnership with the City University of New York—will award both high school diplomas and associates degrees. The new schools are among the 656 opened in the city since 2002, bringing the total number of public schools to 1,821.
