Melissa Testifies at Yesterday’s Hearing on New Charter School

Melissa attended and gave testimony at a hearing yesterday held by the Department of Education to discuss the opening of a proposed new charter school in East Harlem.

Melissa called for a more transparent and community-driven process for school openings and closings in the district, as well as the need for the DOE to work to improve existing schools before closing them down and opening new ones.

The DOE recently released its list of school closures, two of which, the Academy of Environmental Science and Kappa II, are in East Harlem.
