Brooklyn Dreams: DOE Tries Again to Push a Charter into South/Central Brooklyn

PUBLIC HEARING JULY 16 at SHELL BANK MS
(NOTE CORRECTED DATE)

Where do they get these charter school names? Brooklyn Dreams?

Ed Notes covered the Battle of Marine Park (Norm in The Wave on Marine Park Protest Ramifications of The IS 278 Victory) where the IS 278 community brought out masses of people to defeat the DOE attempt to force the Hebrew Language Academy charter school, the brain child of another scion of a billionaire Bloomberg buddy (a BBB). Questions were raised as to how the IS 278 community would respond if an attempt was made to shove a charter into a different school in the neighborhood.

This massive email went out about a hearing on Thurs. July 16 at 7 PM. Should be interesting.

(Shell Bank MS is across the street from Sheepshead Bay HS, one of the few large comprehensive HS in that area of Brooklyn that has not been closed down.)

PLEASE ATTEND THIS IMPORTANT HEARING. IT SEEMS THE DOE WILL ONCE AGAIN BE TRYING TO FORCE A CHARTER SCHOOL INTO ONE OF OUR LOCAL PUBLIC SCHOOL BUILDINGS!

  1. I have every intention of attending this meeting but I doubt that the hordes that attended the I.S. 278 hearing will appear here. The DOE very sneakily planned it for a time when many families are on vacation or otherwise occupied. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if they sneak HLA into I.S. 278 when no one is looking.

  2. There is no reason for a charter school anywhere in District 22. We've got to put our collective foot down and make it clear to this administration that we WON'T just roll over!
