Speak Out for Quality Education for All New York City Students
Last month, the NAACP filed suit against the New York City Department of Education, demanding that the city address the shocking inequalities in public schools.
Sign our petition to the New York City Department of Education:
All students deserve a quality education. We are deeply concerned about schools in which some students have new books, computers, and access to key resources while others in the same building do not.
We believe that decisions on school closures and reorganizations should be carried out with due process involving parents. We expect the city to comply with state law to ensure equitable education for all. And we want to send a message to those considering similar unjust tactics elsewhere that communities will fight them there as well.
I stand with the NAACP and support quality education for all New York City school children and all students nationwide.
