Building Bridges: Your Community and Labor Report National Edition - 28:24 Produced by Ken Nash and Mimi Rosenberg **************************** Bloomberg Stop The Snow Job On Public Schools Closings! with . Stefanie Siegel, teacher, Paul Robeson High School . Lowena Howard, teacher, Paul Robeson High School . Letitia Ingram-Brown, teacher, Paul Robeson High School . Lizabeth Cooper, student, Paul Robeson High School plus Highlights from the Stop Schools Closing Rally
Bloomberg's Department of Education (DOE) plans to close 26 more schools this year. Despite the DOE's claim that these school closings are aimed at reforming schools, they have instead opened the door to privately-run charter schools and have limited school options for those affected. According to the accounts by parents, students and teachers, DOE policies have had the effect of undermining the schools that are slated to be closed, not "fixing" them. Bloomberg has played a shell game with our most vulnerable children, shuffling them around from closing school to closing school. This process has disproportionately affected students of color, only serving to further perpetuate a separate and unequal school system in New York City. A discussion about and sounds from a rally for quality resources and support for our public schools, not closings and privatization! ************************* please email Building Bridges if you are broadcasting our National Edition.
