BROOKLYN - The Department of Education says it expects that thousands more New York City students will attend summer school this year compared to last year.

Education officials say the increase, attributed to slumping test scores, will result in 34,000 elementary and middle school students attending summer school. They say about 23,000 were required to attend last year.

The city requires students in third through eighth grades who score lower than a "3" out of "4" on state math and English exams to attend summer school or repeat a grade.
