End school overcrowding!
According to the DOE’s own data, more than 500,000 public school students are crammed into overcrowded NYC schools. The increased number of 3K, preK and co-located charter school students in our schools have merely made the problem worse. Meanwhile, NYC’s overall population is growing fast and there is a residential building boom in every borough.
Please send a letter to Mayor de Blasio and Chancellor Carranza to fulfill the promise made to parents to fully fund the new capital plan to be released this fall. That way, every school seat will be funded for which the DOE now projects a need, based on current overcrowding and projected enrollment growth.
