NYC parents demand more public space for charter schools at press conference outside City Hall

Thursday Oct. 13th, NYC parents came together to demand concrete action from the de Blasio Administration to provide charter schools with access to public space. As the demand for seats at charter schools grow, school administrators want to provide for as many students as they can, but are road-blocked at every turn by the Mayor’s office. “Enough is enough” charter-advocates say. Legally, charter schools cannot be denied public space, but that does not mean they are granted adequate spacing with any ease.
