Report: 17 NYC schools to close

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Two schools will close this summer and 15 others will reportedly be phased out due to poor performance, said NYC education officials.

More schools will be added to the list, according to the NY Times.

The closings are part of the city's ongoing education reforms.

The schools closing have 16,000 seats and would be replaced by other schools. Schools being phased out will remain open for their students but will not admit other children, reported the Times.

A fierce battle against closing the schools from the United Federation of Teachers is likely.

The Times released this list on Tuesday:

Schools slated to close this summer--

-Freedom Academy High School, Brooklyn

-M.S. 45/S.T.A.R.S. Prep Academy, Manhattan

    Timothy Cardinal Dolan gathered religious and city leaders with the focus of how to ease tensions between police and the community in advance of this Saturday's march to protest the death of Eric Garner. Some of the leaders in this group are rarely photographed together, let alone seated at the same table. But they were brought together over concerns about possible protest violence by the cardinal, one of the most powerful figures in the city and who commands respect across the board.
