From The New York Daily News: New York City school officials have targeted 20 troubled public schools for possible closure next year - but advocates say the city has not done enough to turn them around. The poorly performing schools on the city's "struggling" schools list have been flagged by the Department of Education for low test scores and declining enrollment. Officials are talking with administrators and parents at the schools to decide whether to close them or make additional efforts to improve their performance.
