NYC Council Member Letitia James, along with parents, students and public officials rally against the DOE proposed co-locations of charter school at P.S. 9. Protest this Saturday, January 29th at 1 pm at Duryea Church.
Last Month, the DOE announced that it was planning the phase-out of M.S. 571, the small middle school that shares the building and many facilities with P.S. 9., in order to replace it with the Brooklyn East Collegiate Charter School. P.S. 9 parents and elected officials oppose this change, arguing that the growing enrollment of both P.S. 9 and the Brooklyn East Charter School put the two schools on a collision course for classroom space and will harm the learning environment for students. More information can be found at the school's parent-teacher association's blog: http://ps9pta.blogspot.com/
WHEN: Saturday, January 29, at 1:00 PM
