East Harlem "Save Our Schools Campaign" kicks off this Monday

GEM has heard that Manhattan East and neighboring schools are inviting organizations to help and support them.

They were recently told to leave the building so that it could be given to charter-school “Yes,-I-earn-a-good-living” administrator Eva Moskowitz.

See Juan Gonzalez’s Feb. 27th article in the Daily News about Ms Moskowitz, which begins:

“Eva Moskowitz, the former City Council member who founded a small chain of nonprofit charter schools, is a passionate and abrasive champion of the charter school movement.

“She’s also making a bundle.”. . .

They say she is not shy about packing public meetings with a parent group she has organized, and then demanding that other public schools give up their space to make way for her programs.”

The community is being asked to join teachers and parents to move this issue forward and turn it into a citywide campaign. They are trying to bring all East Harlem schools together on this issue.

Charter Schools should not come into our neighborhoods
and expand at the expense of the District Schools.

WE WILL NOT ALLOW MANHATTAN EAST AND RENISSANCE TO BE PUT OUT AND
