A few organizations have set up petitions and letter-writing campaigns to attempt to address education issues of concern:
Families of pre-K siblings denied seats at their older-sibling's school, take a few minutes to complete this survey, conducted by Parents for DOE Accountability and Action.
If your child was not placed at your zoned school for pre-K, Marty Markowitz' office wants to hear from you. [NB, the prior link is not working; instead, call 718-802-3762 in the morning for particulars, and we'll try to identify another link.]
To protest budget cuts, Concerned Parents of NYC encourages kids to raise their voices, along with their parents and the wider school community.
Exercise your civic activism: Chime in.
