A total of 15 new charter schools are being established next year – a record for NYC.
See message below from mom at PS 15 in Red Hook in D15 in Brooklyn – which is being forced to accept a charter school in its building against the wishes of parents and staff at the school. She has posted a blog at : http://charter-free-ps15.blogspot.com/ that you should check out and post comments on.
There is also a meeting tomorrow night at P.S. 123 about a new charter school, Harlem Success Academy, one in Eva Moskowitz' chain of charter schools, that is being placed in their building against the will of the CEC in D5 and parents at the school.
TIME: 5:30 PM
SPEAKER'S LIST: 5:30- 6:15 PM
DATE: April 1, 2008
LOCATION: 301 W. 140th Street| Village of Harlem
Meanwhile, see article in NY Sun here about the recruiting efforts of these schools, that are apparently being given access to public school parents names and addresses through the DOE mail house. http://www.nysun.com/news/new-york/charters-go-new-recruitment-lengths
