The Hearing to co-locate "Citizens of the World Charter Schools" in JHS126 is Wed., December 5 at 6pm (5:30 to speak).
PLEASE COME!!!! Enclosed is a version in English and a version in Spanish. PLEASE distribute! Send this to your friends and colleagues and urge them to attend. If there's one event in this district to come to that will help ALL of our schools, this is it.
The sustainability and health of all of our neighborhood public schools are at risk. The only reason the NYC DOE wants to co-locate this school in our district is because we have space in our schools, and the only reason we have space is because we don't have enough children to fill up our schools. NYC is 5% charterized, yet our district already has 29% of our Kindergartners enrolled in charter schools. "Citizens of the World Charter School" will raise that to well over 30% and will severely impact enrollment throughout our schools. "Citizens of the World Charter School" in our district is horrible city planning.
The NYC DOE isn't listening to data, reason, or democracy, so we need to get MORE people to help them hear us.
