"Null and Void!"--That is what a Manhattan Supreme Court Judge said today as she reversed a city decision that was made at January's PEP meeting to close 19 schools and extend PAVE Academy's co-location within P.S. 15. The ruling stated what we public school advocates already knew to be true: "...that education officials engaged in “significant violations” of state education law and failed to follow proper process..."Get the full story here! This is a testament to the hundreds of students, parents, teachers and community leaders who attended the nine hour meeting January 26th and watched 8 members of the Panel for Educational Policy ignore all facts, reason and public outcry against school closings and co-locations. This is the result of parents, students and teachers who have been tirelessly working together for months to advocate for their school communities. THIS IS HUGE! More information to come!!!!!
