Upcoming: Meeting on School Budget Cuts
There's a meeting coming up at Borough Hall on Wednesday (2/13) that's bill as an "informational and strategizing session on fighting back the school budget cuts." Council Member Bill de Blasio is one of the sponsors. The session will take place from 6:30PM-8:00PM in the Borough Hall Hearing Room. The location is 209 Joaralemon Street (between Court and Adams). An email we got about the session says:
-We will hear from teachers, students, parents, advocates, and union leaders about how these sudden cuts will affect our schools and our children's education.Schools were recently informed that they would be subjected to across the board 1.75 percent budget cuts.
-Learn about what you can do to reverse these cuts NOW and prevent future budget reductions.
-Discuss your concerns with fellow parents, teachers and community members, and share your ideas about how we can fight to preserve our children's education and reverse the budget cuts together.
