Fight the BCHS Closing

Dear Editor,

Despite a state law requiring the Department of Education to follow a process of properly advertised public hearings and issuing impact statements concerning the effect of closing a public school, the Bloomberg administration has reportedly already decided to close our only local comprehensive high school. According to a report relayed tome by Dr. David Morris, principal of Beach Channel High School, who was told about the decision.

I am ready to help the community organize to save the high school. I have been talking to, and working with parents, students, teachers, public officials, and other alumni during the years of neglect by the Department of Education, and expect all concerned to come together for rallies and other events to show support for Beach Channel.

State Senator Malcolm Smith has encouraged me to work actively to save Beach Channel. The Senator will support the community in this fight.
