Defend public education
Say no to privatization
Bloomberg has played a shell game with our most vulnerable children, shuffling them around from closing school to closing school. This process has disproportionately affected students of color, only serving to further perpetuate a separate and unequal school system in New York City.
In addition to closing schools, the DOE plans to grant more public school space to charter schools through co-locations, undermining public school resources and pitting school communities against each other.
We demand quality resources and support for our public schools, not closings and privatization!
Join parents, students, teachers and community members at a rally to stop school closings.
