No, just the future of certain parts of NYC.  NYC, like LA and Chicago, is sui generis.

Viz. the actual subject, if it weren't NYC I would suspect that those emails were planted by opponents of the school to discredit it; as it is NYC, however, I can full well believe that these are real emails from actual "students."

In defense of the school, it is a high school and the children who wrote this should have had these basic skills long before they got there.

Not at all surprising when you consider at least half of the high school graduates entering public universities require remedial English courses.

true, but the high school hasn't done anything to address those deficiencies, which is indefensible.
