Brownsville rally against school closure

March 17, 2009 pm31 8:54 pm

Rally tomorrow against a school closure in Brooklyn. Teachers learned their school would be closed. Other schools have been reopened as two small schools, or as a small school and a charter. But the DoE told the staff of PS150 that there would be two charter schools and no public schools replacing them. Here is their leaflet:

Respect the Brownsville community
The kids in this community deserve a quality neighborhood school
Join concerned parents and teachers for a RALLY at PS150

Wednesday, March 18, 2009
3:30 – 5:00
In front of the school
364 Sackman Street, 11212

Tell the Department of Education to hear our voice!

  • Parents, teachers and the Brownsville community were not consulted on the decision to phase out the school.
  • We need a guarantee our children will have seats in this elementary school; we want to keep our children in the neighborhood.
  • Give us the resources we need to provide a quality education: enrichment programs, science labs, after school programs, school supplies, and an up to date library.

We need a guarantee that the school will provide mandated services for students with special needs.

For more information, please contact Marisol Pena at (718) 495-7746
