Bronx News Roundup for Oct. 12

The principal at the Bronx High School of Science is facing a student protest over her introduction of more tests and streamlining syllabi.

Confidential records of 150 DeWitt Clinton High School students were apparently stolen from a guidance counselor, found and mailed to the Daily News. The chancellor wants a probe of the incident.

Leading the push to extend Council term limits to 3 terms (12 years) is the Queens delegation which faces a 92.8% turnover rate in 2009 if the current 2-term limit holds.

The New York Sun says the Citizen’s Union is about to come out with a report detailing how much taxpayer money Council members use to take out advertisements. They also say the Council is expected to halt member ad spending completely. Campaign ads would obviously not be affected, as they are funded by campaign contributions from supporters.

Bronx Council Member Larry Seabrook, no stranger to controversy, was fined $500 for using public campaign matching funds to buy $20,000 worth of office furniture and equipment.
