One commenter yesterday asked for more Town Hall meetings on education; this morning, another ambitiously proposed a Town Hall in every school. For starters, City Council member Bill deBlasio of Brooklyn has convened an education Town Hall next week, July 16th, at Brooklyn Borough Hall, from 6:30 to 8 pm.
Planners say that education advocates and elected officials will be on hand to hear parents', students', and teachers' opinions on school governance and mayoral control; we're trying to learn who'll be there and whether anyone from DOE plans to attend.
For information and to RSVP, write email@example.com. (Right now, they've booked the Community Room for the meeting -- but a flood of RSVPs could prompt a change of venue.)
Details to come when we've got 'em.
