Parents, teachers, students and activists gathered on the steps of the Tweed Courthouse, the Department of Education headquarters, this pleasant November evening to speak their minds, air their grievances and stand their ground against the machinations of Mike Bloomberg’s toxic Department of Education which has revealed itself to any objective observer as an shameless, cynical, destructive fraud.
Many, many students and many, many parents gave testimony to that effect. Nothing really new was expressed but the spirit grows ever more undaunted and ever more fearless. May it grow ever more so. May it grow until this tedious nightmare is finally over and people who actually know what they’re doing regain control of our schools and our children’s future.
That day cannot come soon enough.
