I intended to identify the small schools that replaced the comprehensive John Jay High School. They are the three Secondary Schools for:

- - Law,
- - Journalism, and
- - Research

By their names alone, you can assume the worst.

I have just read that the DOPE ("Dept of Public Education") has recently installed another small school in the "John Jay Educational Campus" (the "campus" is just a massive building of an architectural style that, in another time and place, would have been described as "Socialist Heroic".). The new school is the "Millennium Brooklyn High School".

Theoretically, Millennium is a selective academic high school. Since it was created in 2011, there is no track record to examine. Yet.

No representation without taxation.
