Please join us June 12 for the fourth annual "Skinny" awards!


More and more of what’s happening in NYC, from the expansion of charter schools and high-stakes testing, to the new teacher evaluation system and the Common Core standards, are coming down on us from the NY State Education Dept. and the Board of Regents.  
Please join us in honoring two women, both former NYC superintendents and now Regents members, working to see our children do not suffer from the negative impacts of these policies, that the quality of our public schools is strengthened rather than undermined, and that the parents’ voice is heard in Albany.
