Last week the teachers union and several mayoral candidates called for a halt on all co-locations. As you know, we depend on underutilized space in public school buildings to educate your child. As your children grow and their younger siblings start school, we are going to need more space. Without co-location, we won't be able to get it.
This opposition to co-location is not about doing what is best for children. It is about trying to please the teachers union. Please take a look at the following link to learn more: http://www.nydailynews.c
We can't let this happen. We must take a stand. On Thursday morning, parents from several of our schools in Harlem will be picketing outside the offices of the mayoral candidates who came out against co-location. If you are interested in joining them, please contact Norah Cooney at norah.cooney@successacademi
es.org for more information.
We are going to need all of our parents to show up for similar events in the future. This fight is just beginning, and we will need your help! It's time that mayoral candidates start listening to what parents want, and together we can make that happen.
