Here’s Some Clarification
I want to set the record straight. It was I, Fran Weiner, who called Adrian Felton and Mrs. Pringle of Senator Huntley’s office about the plight of Rockaway Head Start’s possible closing.
They came down to our school to verify my facts. They saw us packing then spoke to me, our director, and the students’ parents. I explained that Head Start is much different than a day care and that we help treat families with social work and nutritional needs. And after hearing our plight she asked what we wanted done.
I told her to inform the community and to find out where our funding went. Head Starts are federally funded. So, where is our money?
We had a press conference on Friday, August 10. Senator Huntley expressed the same concern – where is our money?
