From the Daily News:
Overcowding in some of Queens' large, generalized high schools appears to be up this fall - and the culprit could be the borough's high number of struggling schools.
Parents are pulling students out of schools that the city and state have identified as failing, local leaders and parents said. And those students are now exacerbating overcrowding in nearby high schools, they said.
City officials were quick to point out that there was no data to support this claim.
Let's not use common sense, but instead rely on "data".
