Eva Moskowitz Wants Mosaic Prep Academy- Hearing, Monday

It goes on and on. Co-locations are temporary - for the public schools, not the charters, which by growing a grade a year while the public schools are stifled, will take over public school building after public school building. Monday it happens again. Be there if you dare.

To whom it may concern

I Rose A Jimenez Parent Association President at Mosaic Preparatory Academy in East Harlem am writing this letter to invite you to our School on Monday June 21, 2010 at 4:30 pm to a hearing hosted by Harlem Success Academy 3.

You all know Mosaic has been housing this Charter School for 2 years and now they have put in a proposal to take over our School Building and all the procedures have been done in an illegal manner so the East Harlem Community is outraged and is standing up once again to fight back as we have been for the last year and a half, only this time we are asking for the resignation of our Principal because Mosaic Parents and Scholars WANT a Leader whom is not scared to stand toe to toe with their Parents and Community to provide an Equal Education for our Kids.
Our School has everything a Charter School has including the College readiness theme with very little money we make sure our Scholars receive a Quality Education.

Please come out and join us the Parents, the Community, the Boro-President Scott Stringer, Public Advocate Bill de Blasio, Council Woman Melissa Mark-Viverito, all the candidates for the 68th Assembly District seat, community Leaders, Organizers, UFT Reps, CEC4, Presidents Council 4 and many others to save Mosaic Prep Academy and be a part of History in East Harlem because we will WIN, WIN, WIN!


Yours in Education,

  1. Who do we think is filling the classrooms at HSA? Are they growing test tube babies or educating aliens? NO! Parents are CHOOSING to send their children there because of the SUPERIOR education they receive. The zoned school isn't shrinking because of HSA, it is shrinking because it is not a good school and parents like me are beginning to realize that they could have MUCH MUCH BETTER.

    The only problem with HSA is that they can't grow quickly enough!

  2. Are they REALLY better schools or is that the PERCEPTION? There are good and bad schools, charter and non-charter. Simply because it says it is a charter school, it should not be assumed to be good just as a community public school should not be presumed to be bad.

  3. WHAT I HAVE SEEN THIS LAST YEAR AS A PA PRESIDENT, POLITICIAN, CEC MEMBER, AND ACTIVIST IS THAT THE PRINCIPALS ARE BEING INTIMIDATED BY DOE TO DO WHAT THEY WANT, ALSO I'VE SEEN SOME PRINCIPALS WHO DON'T HAVE THE COURAGE TO FIGHT! SOME OTHERS ARE ON FIRE AND THEY'LL DEAL WITH THE CONSEQUENCES LATER I COMMEND THEM BECAUSE SAVING OUR SCHOOLS SHOULD BE A CITY WIDE EFFORT.
    THEY MAYOR AND THE CHANCELLOR SAY WE FAILED WELL GUESS WHAT WE FAILED ON THEIR WATCH SO WHOS THE FAILURE? THE WAY I SEE IT, THIS IS A COWARDLY ACT THAT INSTEAD OF ADMITTING TO THEIR OWN FAILURES THEY BLAME US AS POLITICIANS, PARENTS AND COMMUNITY AND RUN OFF TO CREATE ANOTHER SYSTEM WHICH EVENTUALLY WILL FALL BY ITS OWN WEIGHT AND OUR KIDS WILL BE THE ONES LEFT WITH NO EDUCATION AND THEY WILL CONTINUE TO CALL US MINORITIES, BUT WHY? YOU FAILED FIRST!!!!
    PARENTS STAND UP AND FIGHT FOR WHAT IS RIGHTFULLY YOURS THE FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND THE FREEDOM OF EDUCATION!!
