Dear colleagues,

On Feb. 1 and 3, the mayor’s Panel on Educational Policy will vote on the DOE’s proposal to close 25 of our schools.  The Support Our Schools rally is taking place on Thursday, Feb. 3, at 4:30 p.m. outside Brooklyn Tech.
Parents, teachers, community members will be at the Feb. 3 united with the message: Closing struggling schools rather than working with them and offering them the support they need to serve ALL their students is not educational “reform” – it’s educational neglect.
I hope to see you there.


Michael Mulgrew
UFT President
