As predicted the swarm from Tweed and the Network descended on QMHS. It was not clear what they were doing but they did question some teachers and made surprise visits into classrooms.

The Gotham site is being used as a community board where there are personal attacks on parents and others.

Late word is a rally against Levy-Maguire and the DOE on Tuesday after school.
