Update: Class size hearings to be held on Friday Feb. 28, 10AM at City Hall!

Our class size hearings have been rescheduled again, and will now be held on Friday February 28, at 10AM at City Hall in the Committee Room. 

We really need parents, teachers, and concerned citizens to come out and show their support for this event. You can come to testify or show your support for smaller class sizes.

If you cannot attend, you can also send written testimony or a statement of support to by March 4, which will be shared with the Education Committee members

If you do plan to testify or send a statement, is always best to speak from your own experience as a parent or teacher. But additional points you could make are provided in our Class Size FAQ here.

These rescheduling issues are out of our hands, but we apologize for any confusion or inconvenience this causes. Thank you for your patience, and for your continued support for NYC students.

 And if you haven’t already, please also call Speaker Corey Johnson at 212-564-7757 or 212-788-7210 and your own Council Member – you can find out their contact info at 

Urge them to allocate at least $100 million in next year’s budget for class size reduction. 

Then follow up by letting us know at our quick survey. Thanks so much to those of you who’ve done this already.
