The Mayor’s block on East 79th Street was packed on Thursday evening with New York City students, parents and teachers who are furious over Mayor Bloomberg’s overt attempt to undermine public education. Closing 22 more schools and giving public school space to charter schools are two of the many destructive tactics being utilized by the Mayor.
Students, parents and teachers understand what the Mayor does not.
Norman Siegel and students from Beach Channel and Jamaica High School spoke with protesters after they marched in front of Mayor Bloomberg’s home.
The march was a powerful protest against Mayor Bloomberg and the Department of Education’s efforts to pull the rug out from under and destroy public education.
Students from the 22 schools understand that Mayor Bloomberg and Joel Klein are the ones who’ve failed.
