Inside Colocation - Success Academy Charter Misuse of Space Exposed

...some of Success’ classrooms have remained empty for entire years, not a single classroom in the building’s public schools has been “underutilized” in the eleven years I’ve been in this building. .. Inside Colocation blog
This teacher blogs sporadically but when he/she does it is worth reminding everyone of the perfidy of the Eva Moskowitz's operation. Here are the June and August posts. Note the maps and the fragmentation of the public schools in order to keep Eva's space intact - and "clean" from contamination by public school teachers and students. What is the future of this school building looking ahead? Total occupation by Success, with the public schools moved or eliminated.

Inside Colocation

The public school where I've been teaching for over ten years has been "colocated" by a Success Academy charter school. Most people don't know what a colocation looks like, or how it impacts the existing school community. I've been maintaining this blog since Success first moved in to document the process. 

Entering the third year of co-location, you can see that International has lost space and is spread widely throughout the building, evidencing many grueling classroom moves. Global has also lost considerable space, while Success now occupies space on two floors. While some of Success’ classrooms have remained empty for entire years, not a single classroom in the building’s public schools has been “underutilized” in the eleven years I’ve been in this building.

As of Thursday, the final day of the school year, our school lost five more classrooms to the charter school, despite our ever-increasing enrollment of students. Teachers packed up their classrooms in boxes. They have fingers crossed that everything makes it to their new rooms ok, as many supplies were lost on the previous move. Renovations were scheduled to begin first thing Friday morning, and I’m sure as of this moment, they are already well underway. These rooms, which have served our school for over a decade, will be utterly transformed by September, using a combination of taxpayer and corporate funds.
