Protect the educational rights of students in the Lower East Side

This petition had 682 supporters


The education of the students who currently attend public school in the Corlears 056 Campus is in jeopardy. The Department of Education has proposed to co-locate an elementary charter school in a building that already houses three middle schools, a high school and a citywide space science center. We are not opposed to charter schools or this charter in particular. We are opposed to co-locations that will result in the loss of resources for high need students like the ones who currently attend school in the building. The elected officials in the community agree and have drafted a letter urging the DOE to reconsider this plan. <http://www.scribd.com/doc/84547383/Elected-Official-s-letter-to-DOE-over-LES-Co-location>  By signing this petition you are showing these officials that you support their opposition to this plan and you expect them to follow through on their words.
