You have reached the home of a new blog for NYC public school parents.
This will be the first such blog devoted to the views of NYC parents to my knowledge – though there are hundreds of NYC teachers who already have blogs, as well as lots of education pundits nationwide.
We think it’s more critical than ever before to get the word out how parents really feel about what’s happening to our schools – and what changes we would like to see made.
When I speak to parents in Washington DC or other cities debating Mayoral control, they have absolutely no idea what is really going on here in NYC, because few of them have access to our local news or read any of our papers, except perhaps the NY Times.
We also want to hear from NYC parents who believe that there are good things happening in our schools that we would otherwise not know about; or potential allies among elected officials or the advocacy community who are working towards improving our schools in ways we should support.
Welcome to our blog; and please join us!
