Teachers To Protest Eviction Of Students

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

Students, parents, teachers and concerned community members who are fighting a proposal by Mayor de Blasio’s Education Department to close their neighborhood school - and evict 300 students - will march in protest Thursday from the school through the nearby business district. More than half of the students are from the Dominican Republic.

In an emailed statement, teachers James Donohue and Craig Moss said students, parents, teachers and community members are outraged that the Education Department failed to even provide Junior High School 145 even the most basic staffing and resources, "and now plans on punishing the students for the failure of DOE bureaucrats."

"This is a 100% minority-student population in the poorest Congressional District in the United States, and it deserves much better than this from NYC," the teaches said.
