Four struggling New York City schools will be shut down, officials announced Wednesday, joining 91 city schools that have closed since 2002. More announcements on school closures -- which must be approved by a panel -- are expected in coming weeks. "We know that in these schools, as in schools citywide, our teachers and administrators are working very hard," one official said. "This proposal is a reflection of our belief that in some schools there is simply not the capacity to fulfill our promise to kids to prepare them for the future."
