Queens public schools are most overcrowded

From the Daily News:

It's a little more than just one too many at Queens's packed-to-the-gills public schools.

About 53% of Queens students attended crowded schools in the 2006-2007 school year - far more than other boroughs, according to a new report.

City education officials put the number a little lower, at 44%.

"In other boroughs, you would have a couple of community districts that had overcrowded schools," said Helaine Doran, deputy director of the Campaign for Fiscal Equity, which released the report that analyzed enrollment data.

"In Queens, almost every community school district had overcrowded schools."

Why Queens?

Rampant illegal conversions - check
An explosion in the population of illegal aliens - check
Building more towers on the shore - check
Replacing one-family houses with 6-unit apartment buildings - check
Upzoning Flushing, LIC, Jamaica and Queens Blvd - check
Bloomberg encouraging all the above - check
Rampant wasteful spending - check
Taxpayers forced to pay for all this - check
