Assembly Hearing May 10, 2019


Email to request an invitation to attend or speak.

They will allow 5 minutes for people to speak. Education Chair Benedetto is reasonable. We must express; the test is not the problem, Brooklyn Tech was majority Black and Latino in the 70s. 80s, and 90s. using the same test.

The dismantling of gifted and talented classes in elementary and middle schools broke their pipeline. The proposals to abolish the test is fostering racial division and polarizing the city. Fix K-8 schools, support BILLS that create more GT classes.

Recognize that the Mayor’s proposal reduces the Asian students at these schools by 50%. The Mayor and Chancellor have neglected to examine the impact to the Asian community .
