Premise: Enough is enough. Chancellor Carranza seems to be a decent well-intentioned guy, but he isn’t from here. He has little trust that what many of us came to believe and have fought for over the last fifth years; that the key to developing healthy child, family and neighborhood centered productive public schools in the neighborhoods around the boroughs that are at the bottom of the priority list of our economic system and whose people of color and poor have become expendable as workers to this 21st century capitalist system, is parent/family neighborhood and community engagement in all aspects of their schools’ education program, governance and culture.
Come Join Us: This Workshop, open to 15, led by 2 of NYC”s most experienced Public School Educator Activist Teacher/Administrators; Dr. Bernard Gassaway and Alan Schulman, intends to bring parent and community activists in public education together to produce an actionable Position/Vision Paper for the Future, over four sessions and a public presentation of our findings at one of the local NYC colleges.
