STOP THE CHARTER SCHOOL INVASION THREATENING DISTRICTS 21 and 20

Rally at Seth Low (99 Ave. P in Brooklyn) Monday, Sept. 30 at 5:30 before the 6 PM meeting.

They're coming. Charter and co-loco invasions are coming to every nook and cranny of the public school system, even those who thought they were exempt from the carnage. But people are fighting back.

Many of us have been through this drill time and again, always with the same result. But with Bloomberg Tweedies soon to be vacating the premises there is some hope. A strong community demonstration just might have an impact. Or it might not, but now is the time to go for it.

Monday I will be at Round 3 of the Portelos hearing -- I may leave early to get over to Seth Low for the rally and the early part of the hearing before heading over to the CEC 15 High Stakes Testing meeting at PS 51 which will feature Leonie Haimson and MORE/Change the Stakes Jia Lee and Fred Smith on Panel HST Panel with Shael Polokow-Suransky, who people are guessing may be an interim Chancellor when the skunks dessert the mother ship. Shael tries to appear reasonable and parent friendly. Don't believe it.

Here's the text of the leaflet if you want to share.
