Sunday: Parents Grade De Blasio on education: promises made, promises kept

I'm going to try to make this event with my video camera. These parents deserve our support.
Dear friend of NYC KidsPAC:
This Sunday, April 19 at noon in front of Tweed, 52 Chambers St., we will be releasing a report that grades Mayor de Blasio after one year of office on whether he’s made progress towards fulfilling his campaign promises in education.

We will be grading him in many critical areas, including parent engagement, governance, transparency and accountability, class size, special education, overcrowding, school closings, co-locations and many others.
Please join us! We will also have copies of the scorecard and report to give out at the press conference.

President, NYC KidsPAC

Here are details from Leonie:
