Learn About Public Charter Schools

The facts, history, proven success, and the journey ahead

Parent advocate, Jemeice Bloomfield, writes to Kings County Politics, her local newspaper, about growing the quality education options in her community.

Coney Island Prep parent advocate, Jemeice Bloomfield, took her voice to the local news in early February to discuss the near-future of quality public education in her community. She applauded Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams and Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. for their joint initiative to bring more gifted and talented programs to their neighborhoods that will more fully represent the diverse composition of the city’s children. Additionally, she stressed the importance of elected leaders supporting fair facilities and funding for the protection and growth of public charter schools.

 

“For this movement to succeed, New York City’s charter schools need the backing of city and state leaders, who can provide them with the funding and public space they require to grow. If the Path to Possible is going to become a reality, more elected officials must show the same commitment to education equality as my Congressman, Hakeem Jeffries, who marched alongside charter families in Prospect Park, or as my Borough President, Eric Adams, with his gifted and talented initiative.”
