That's a notice that's just been posted on the NYC Parents blog and the importance of this conference is without question.
There isn't any parent or educator in the city who can remain inactive when our communities, education goals, and social ethics are being so undermined by this oligarchic mayor and his non-educator chancellor.
Here's what the rest of the post says:
Parents want to know what can be done.
Class Size Matters is hosting an emergency citywide conference about the proposed school closings by the Department of Education. We will be hearing from parents, students and teachers at the affected schools, and will share strategies and legal options.
When: Saturday, Jan. 16, 2010 from 9:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
Where: School of the Future, 127 East 22nd Street, NYC. (take the #6 to 23 St.)
Norman Siegel, famed civil rights attorney, will be one of the speakers.
