"On February 9th at Brooklyn Tech High School, more than 2,000 parents, students and teachers voted "No Confidence" in the Panel for Educational Policy (PEP), a rubber-stamp for Michael Bloomberg's undemocratic system of mayoral control over New York City's public schools.
"In complete indifference to the will of parents, students, teachers, and the borough appointees on the panel, the mayor's puppets have voted to close 117 schools. These closures are devastating to local communities and a testament to the utter failure of a decade of mayoral dictatorship over the public school system." see: http://www.gemnyc.org
