Big doings at roughly 100 NYC public schools tomorrow, many in Brooklyn:
The protests are taking place before and after school hours.
According to Chalkbeat: "Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced he would link a potential boost in state education funding to a series of controversial policy changes, including tying teacher evaluations more closely to student test results, raising the charter-school cap, and placing consistently low-performing schools in the hands of outside groups."
Participating Brooklyn schools include:
Arts & Letters (with PS .20)
Brooklyn New School (with BSC below )
Brooklyn School for Collaborative Studies (w/ BNS)
MS 443 and MS 88 (w/ PS 295)
Park Slope Collegiate
Internat'l HS Pros. Hts
