Carmine screeches about charter schools

It is no secret that the Community Education District 21, of which I am a former member and maintain close ties with, is fighting a losing battle against the Department of Education and the Bloomberg Administration over charter schools. The city is determined to shoehorn the Coney Island Prep charter school into a Department of Education building, sharing precious space and resources with one of our public schools, and it’s not going to stop until it gets that job done. Its latest target is IS 303. Comment.
