Dear Children’s School families,
The faculty of P.S. 372 is mobilizing against the mayor’s threatened layoffs–including the Children’s School teachers we stand to lose if the mayor gets his way. We will be turning out for the March 17 rally described below, and we are appealing to you to join us. Tell your friends. Bring your kids.
The rally is sponsored by New York Communities for Change, the Alliance for Quality Education, and the even a charter school parents association. It is one of a series of rallies all over the state this week, as we count down to the April 1 state budget deadline. The more state aid we can preserve for NYC schools, the stronger our case against layoffs.
UFT chapter leader
The Children’s School
P.S. Please go to “Parent partners: Help stop the layoffs, stop the lies” at http://www.uft.org/campaigns/parent-partners-help-stop-layoffs-stop-lies to help spread the word about the threat to our children, our teachers, and our schools.
>>Rally to Stop the Cuts!<<
>Thursday, March 17th at 6:30pm
>Brooklyn Borough Hall
College and Careers, NOT CUTS!
Speak Out! Speak Up! STOP Cuts to Our Schools!
Fact: Half a million children are not prepared for college and careers, yet Governor Cuomo plans $1.5million in education budget cuts.
It is unacceptable to take a billion dollars from our children’s classrooms to finance a tax cut for millionaires.
TELL LEGISLATORS THEY WON ELECTION ON PROMISES TO DEFEND PUBLIC EDUCATION—
NOW THEY HAVE TO DELIVER!
