About a decade ago, it became increasingly common to hear public school parents in New York talk about carting rolls of paper towels, boxes of crayons and dry erasers into classrooms because teachers lacked basic supplies. Manhattan private schools were planning greenhouses and displaying cafeteria menus on flat-screen televisions, but in a new Dickensian era of public education, there would be neither magic nor Magic Markers. Photographed for The New York Times with words by Ginia Bellafante.
