Starting next year, New York plans to begin grading schools as meeting or falling below standards based on data broken out by race. This may mean that traditionally good schools may earn a poor grade if the black population, no matter the size, does not score well.

Frederick J. Frelow, a black Nyack parent and an official with the National Commission on Teaching and America's Future at TC said, "It's no longer OK to put these kids in the nonacademic track, and it's going to be very disturbing to a lot of communities. "
