Eric Adams criticized for suggesting one NYC teacher can ‘teach 300 to 400 students’ with remote learning

New York City mayoral candidate Eric Adams took some heat Saturday for suggesting that one teacher can successfully handle a virtual class of up to 400 students. The Brooklyn borough president got in trouble for waxing poetic about a single talented instructor at Bronx High School of Science or Stuyvesant High School in Manhattan who could reach hundreds of kids struggling to make the grade.

Irvington Student Wins International Film Award

Kate Abrams, a seventh grader from Irvington Middle School, has won an inaugural international film competition. The award was given by Videos for Change, an Australian-based nonprofit filmmaking program. Kate was introduced to the program when Irvington Theater presented a virtual, collaborative, two-week filmmaking class for students last July. (After its successful launch, the theater ran a second after-school course in the fall and hopes to continue the program later this year.) Participants enrolled from communities in and outside of the rivertowns (including Yonkers, Brooklyn, and New Jersey); Irvington Theater provided scholarships for students who could not otherwise take the course, bringing together kids from a diversity of backgrounds and interests. At the close of each session, the theater produced a virtual festival for students and their families, where Kate’s video premiered.
