John Dewey HS in Brooklyn, NY Initiates Fight Back Fridays

John Dewey HS Alumni Association web site: JDAA website:
Threatened with being closed down after being fed a poison pill by the NYCDOE of having the very programs that have attracted generations of students eliminated, an influx of students from other large high schools in Brooklyn and budget cuts, the John Dewey school community has implemented a Fight Back Friday series of before school rallies on Stillwell Avenue beginning at 7:15. If you are in the neighborhood stop by or honk as you drive by.


Join the Grassroots Education Movement and the Real Reformers at the November 16 PEP meeting at Brooklyn Tech at 5:30 as they perform the rap song “Will the Real Reformers Please Stand Up!” in front of the school as a prelude to the meeting.

  2. The alumni of John Dewey High School are with you! Please sign the Save Dewey petition and have everyone you know who is concerned sign it too. (The petition website request for donations is just a request – no obligation to pay anything!) – Barbara A., 1974

  3. I am a Graduate Art & Design Education student at Pratt Institute currently writing a thesis on the topic of student opportunities and school closings under Bloomberg. I am using John Dewey HS for my case study and would like to interview people for the thesis and for the documentary I am putting together. The names and faces will remain anonymous unless otherwise requested. Please contact me at Thank you!
