"Is it not cruel to let our city die by degrees, stripped of all her proud monuments, until there will be nothing left of all her history and beauty to inspire our children? If they are not inspired by the past of our city, where will they find the strength to fight for her future?" Jacqueline Kennedy

Best Comment Of The Day: Playing Wack-A-Mole

Anonymous has left the following comment on the post "Opponents Of 'Cobble Hill Success Academy' Urge Others To Join Fight For Public Education":
"Playing Wack-A-Mole with the Stepford parents and teachers on the Gotham Schools message board is exasperating.If Eva Moskowitz wants to open a charter in D15 she should make the proposal to the CEC and not do this end run around the D15 CEC. Better yet, she should find her own space and pay for it like Prospect Charter did. She should also spend some of her near two million dollar advertising budget on the ENTIRE district and not just focus on a specific demographic.I aslo don't think relieving over crowding in high performing schools is a legitimate reason to open a charter school.But what I really want to know is will the Cobble Hill parents have to attend Saturday detention if their children are late or will there be different rules than at the first Success Charters? What happens if the hedge fund well dries up? And most importantly, what is the plan after the charter reaches full capacity at the fourth grade?"
