NYC Department of Education: Fair Admission Process for Gifted and Talented Program

A child's future should not depend on the lottery. If you agree with this statement, please support this petition. The current percentile tile ranking system is not fair and hasn't serve children's best interests. We are asking DOE to adopt composite score as the ranking system for G&T admission.
