Make your voice heard: how should the DOE be reducing class size?
The Class Size Working Group appointed by the Chancellor to help develop a plan to lower class size citywide in accordance with the new state law is holding public engagement sessions online and in person starting next week to present their preliminary proposals and get feedback:
Tuesday, September 26th - 5- 7:30pm online (Manhattan/Brooklyn);
Wednesday, September 27th - 5- 7:30pm online (Queens/Bronx/Staten Island)
Monday, October 2nd – Citywide from 5- 7:30pm in person at the MLK Campus Auditorium, 122 Amsterdam Ave, Manhattan.
Registration links for each of these sessions are here: https://learndoe.org/class_size/
Please register, attend, and let your voice be heard, especially as those few vocal parents who opposed the law and urged the Governor to repeal it are already doing outreach.
More information about these hearings and a summary of the draft proposals will soon be posted on the Infohub website here.
Full disclosure: I am a member of the Working Group and Class Size Matters along with many other advocacy and parent groups advocated for the passage of the law.
