UFT Charter School Teaches Practice of Democracy - in Theory Only

The UFT Charter School 300 Wyona Avenue Brooklyn, NY 11207 5 year renewal hearing was held on Oct. 22.

"Currently serving Kindergarten through 9 grades, the UFT Charter School is committed to closing the achievement gap and creating a school built on democratic principles of respect, tolerance, and liberty so that students will alsobecome practitioners of democracy and civic responsibility. This school is authorized by the State University of New York – Charter School Institute. More information about the school can be found on the school’s website at"

Students will attend UFT Delegate Assemblies and Executive Board meetings to see democracy in practice.
