Join us on Wed. to protest the budget cuts and class sizes at your school!

Join us at rally this Wednesday, to protest the severe budget cuts to our schools, the increases class sizes, and the loss of valuable programs. 
Come and fight for your child's right  to receive a quality education!
Class sizes in many schools are far worse than I have ever heard– despite the city’s legal obligation to reduce them – and are now above 30 in many schools, even in the early grades.   It is really outrageous how the state and the city have failed our kids. 
When: Wednesday, Sept. 21st @ 12:00 P.M
Where: DOE headquarters, Tweed Courthouse, 52 Chambers St.
(take the 4, 5, 6, N & R to City Hall- BK Bridge, or 1, A/C to Chambers St.)
Who: parents and outraged citizens. Co-sponsored by: Class Size Matters, Alliance for Quality Education, NYC Coalition for Educational Justice, NYC Parents Union, African American Clergy and Elected Officials, Charity B.C. of Christ,  Cody Cares, Churches United to Save and Heal, Greater New York Labor-Religion Coalition, New York Divinity School, and Mirabal Sisters.
A flyer is to the right that you can post or distribute in your school.
