CEC Petition – Fight the budget cuts in D6!

District 6, Northern Manhattan has been unfairly targeted by the DOE for years. On top of co-locations we have had received budget cuts totally more than 10 million in less than 10 years. Many times the biggest cuts happening at co-located schools. Very few of the co-locations were community supported and the methods in which OPM/DOE engaged community is questionable. D6 has struggled, our children are better, deserve better and we demand better. We know we have a lot of work to do in Northern Manhattan schools but it begins with the community, in the community. As parents we must dream not just for ourselves but for our children and not allow the DOE to limit their dreams any longer. PLS SIGN this petition an spread the word. We need as much support as possible! After some investigations, much of this is false and we are still being asked to proceed with public hearing in early October before a PEP vote in October. We are not going to accept this and are asking for ALL parents to stand with us as we begin to take back our district and take a stand with against more co-locations in our community. Pls sign and spread the word! Big Thanks from Northern Manhattan!
