Here is the link to the NY1 story with a quote from Walcott threatening disciplinary action. Gee, maybe he can threaten them with closing their school. Right now he said kids would be marked absent. I wonder what would happen if teachers couldn't manage keeping track of that.
Gotham story: Students defend Dewey from closure in afternoon walk-out
Interesting point made giving GEM initiative Fight Back Friday some credit:
Today’s walk-out was inspired by a city-wide campaign begun by the advocacy group the Grassroots Education Movement called “Fight Back Friday.” Other school communities have participated in Fight Back Friday protests, including Herbert H. Lehman High School and Schomburg Satellite Academy, a transfer school where teachers and students also planned to walk out today.
Schomburg Satellite Academy in the Bronx -- Students met with Ruben Diaz jr. This walkout is over co-location issue. SEE THE FOLLOW-UP ON ED NOTES:
Monday Mar 12 is the public hearing at the school.
And then headed over to Tweed! That might shake the tree.
