Meanwhile, according to the Daily News, the parents at PS 15 in Red Hook have apparently lost their battle with DOE to keep out the PAVE charter school, founded by Spencer Robertson, son of billionaire hedge fund manager Julian Robertson.
The Police Athletic League with classrooms in a nearby public housing project had been approached by Councilmember Sara Gonzalez but turned the charter down; as the director of the program said, “There are charter schools trying to set up all over the city. They're coming to PAL and other organizations. We would love to help, but at what expense to the [PAL]?"
One might also ask, who’s looking out for PS 15?
