Residents rally against school merger

Students and educators rally at City Hall on Feb. 27.

“We’ve been told a merger is different than a closure because students and teachers will have a school to go to,” said one teacher. “However, Rucker will be no more. Where do our public schools go? They’re relocated permanently, and they’re forgotten.”

Programs unveiled for struggling schools

Banana Kelly High School is among four area schools the DOE has placed in its Renewal Program.

Four schools in Hunts Point and Longwood have been targeted as part of the mayor’s new Renewal School Program, which means longer school days, more teacher training and other changes.
