Hearings scheduled for Oct. 27 on class size bill; please urge your Council Member to sign on and testify yourself at the hearings!

Thanks to all of you who called the Speaker's office, urging him to schedule hearings on the classroom capacity bill that would phase in smaller classes, Intro 2374, introduced by the Speaker Corey Johnson and Council Education Chair Mark Treyger.

Yesterday it was announced that Council hearings would be held on this bill on Wed. Oct. 27 starting at 10 AM.

Two things you can do to help ensure the bill is actually passed: See if your Council Members have signed onto the bill by clicking on the link here, and if not, give them a call and ask them to co-sponsor. You can identify your Council Members and find their contact info here.

It would be great if you could also testify remotely at the Oct. 27 hearings; if you can't make it, you can send in written testimony within 72 hours of the close of the hearings. Instructions on how to sign up to speak or send in testimony are here.
