We are holding our annual “Skinny Award” Dinner a week from today, June 15 at 6 PM, honoring four teacher-warriors. The dinner will be co-hosted by Diane Ravitch and other parent leaders.
Please check it out and RVSP on our FB page at http://www.facebook.com/event.
Diane will be making an exciting announcement at the dinner that concerns Class Size Matters.
Class Size Matters works hard trying to ensure that in NYC and throughout the country, children get the smaller classes they need for a better chance to learn.
The four teachers we are honoring have done stellar work, defending their schools and all NYC schools from damaging closures and co-locations that threaten to make things worse.
Please come and show your support.
