July 23 — Charter School hearing in Brooklyn

Community School District # 13

From the organizers:
This came about because I questioned whether public notice was given to the community at-large.

We need as many people as possible to show up. District 13 does not need another charter school. We already have the following:
Community Roots Charter School
Leadership Bedord-Stuyvesant Prep Charter School
Community Partnership Charter School
Achievement First Endeavors Middle School - pushed into our district because they built a school in our district. They were supposed to serve District 14. They haven't done so well lately.

The other schools haven't had a graduation as yet. Leadership in which my daughter is a former student just had their first year of testing 3rd grade.

Community Partnership is not doing well.

We have Bedford Academy in our district who graduated 96% of their students this year in 4 years.
