January 25th Rally At Bronx Courthouse To Protest Bronx School Closings

Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. and the UFT are co-sponsoring a rally outside the Bronx Supreme Court on Monday, Jan. 25, at 4 p.m., to protest the DOE’s unjustified proposal to close seven Bronx schools. Parents, educators, students, alumni and community activists will be coming out to keep the pressure on the Department of Education.

The citywide Panel of Educational Policy will vote on the school closings the following day.

“The DOE thinks it can close seven Bronx schools and not disrupt the lives of the students, their parents and the fabric of the community,” said UFT Borough Representative Jose Vargas. “They’ve denied the supports and resources that these Bronx schools need to help our students, especially our students with the highest needs.”

Please join us outside the Bronx Supreme Court at 161st Street and Grand Concourse at 4 p.m. to tell the Department of Education what we think of its plan to close our schools. For more information, visit the BronxClosingSchools page on YouTube.
