Stop the co-locations of charter schools in D15 Brooklyn and citywide!

    1. Petition by

      Class Size Matters

The DOE has proposed to put a charter school in D15, to be co-located with two high schools and a District 75 program. Charter co-locations are hurting our children and undermining the progress of our NYC  public schools.   They enroll fewer high needs students, drain resources and space from our schools and receive more in per pupil public funding .  They cause our schools to lose art rooms, science labs, libraries and dedicated space for students with disabilities to receive their mandated services.

      Hi everyone,

      My name is Melinda Martinez, I am a mother of 4 daughters at the School for International Studies where Eva Moskowitz wants to co-locate her Success Academy Charter School. Like many of you, I was appalled to see that after hours of testimony from parents and Cobble Hill residents against the co-location in the K293 building, Marc Sternberg (DOE Deputy Chancellor) said his opinion remained unchanged. As if that wasn't enough, the next day I came to find out that Eva Moskowitz is considering running for Mayor-- this is scary! We must not let another politician advance their political career on the backs of our public school children.

      A number of parents at my school believe it's time to take further action against Eva Moskowitz moving into our school and harming our children's education. I am urging parents from Cobble Hill and across the city to join us to:
      SPEAK-OUT AGAINST EVA MOSKOWITZ!

      We support great schools, great neighborhoods and transparent democracies. If the DOE really wants to do its job, it would start listening the people who know best about kids: the parents.

      District 15 has a new charter school, Brooklyn Prospect that opened 3 years ago. I don't understand the push for a second charter. Why can't the funds be given to the exisiting schools to improve what we have?
