35 NYC Public Schoolkids have committed suicide in last three years

The New York Post reports:
The suicide epidemic among city schoolchildren is even worse than officials suggested last week — and on an upward trajectory, The Post has learned.

Thirty-five public-school kids have killed themselves in the past three school years, the Department of Education revealed — an unpublicized trend that Chancellor Carmen Fariña only hinted at last week when she told principals in a private meeting that 10 children had taken their lives during her first seven weeks on the job.
Death by public education. Yet, some people think children should spend more time in public school!
