Check it out: New York Students First Blog

“We are middle and high school students deprived of a quality, well-rounded public education by Mayor Bloomberg in New York City. We are the victims of Mayoral Control.

For years our parents have advocated and lobbied for our education against devastating budget cuts, school closings and co-locations and were ignored. Our parents, our lobbyists, have fought for small class sizes, full day Pre-K and Kindergarten, less testing, more arts, music and science classes and were ignored.

Today, 87% of Black & Latino students are not college ready. Today, 87% of Black & Latino students are victims of Mayor Bloomberg’s shell game of school reform.

We have launched this website with our parents to fight back against Mayor Bloomberg’s agenda to destroy public education and our futures.”
