John Dewey HS in Brooklyn, NY Initiates Fight Back Fridays

Threatened with being closed down after being fed a poison pill by the NYCDOE of having the very programs that have attracted generations of students eliminated, an influx of students from other large high schools in Brooklyn and budget cuts, the John Dewey school community has implemented a Fight Back Friday series of before school rallies on Stillwell Avenue beginning at 7:15. If you are in the neighborhood stop by or honk as you drive by.

Join the Grassroots Education Movement and the Real Reformers at the November 16 PEP meeting at Brooklyn Tech at 5:30 as they perform the rap song "Will the Real Reformers Please Stand Up!" in front of the school as a prelude to the meeting.

  2. Keep up the fight and do not count on your city council as Dominic Rechhia the Bloomberg lackey is surely not on your side of this fight.

  3. Wow...de-ja-vu...We did the same thing 2 years ago at Canarsie High School...See where it got us...No where, we are in our last year Good bye Canarsie!!! This sucks! This mayor has an agenda...and if your school is on it...bye, bye! It is a shame! How much more are we going to take! I thought we won an injunction last year on NOT closing any more large high schools. What Happened UFT...where are you!! How many more good large high schools are going to be "Restructured" by replacing senior people with fellowship teachers and "new principals" who have no clue! Nice to see the unity of the school. I wish you all the luck in the world...Keep on trying. Maybe, just maybe, someone will stop this MADNESS! -Former Canarsie H.S. Staff member
