      > Not clear to me why Council staff is hawking charter schools� with all the money, huge advertising campaigns hedge funders, venture capitalists, and DOE support behind charter schools, and the way in which they drain resources and space from our regular public schools, why is this considered acceptable? Shouldn�t the Council be invested in helping recruit kids instead to our regular public schools? From: Hawkins, Simone [mailto:SHawkins@...]

      > The New York City Charter School Center has launched an initiative to help increase access to public charter schools for all New Yorkers by making it easier than ever to apply. We need your help to get the word out. We would like to partner with your office to make sure that your constituents know about the educational choices available to them and make sure that no one in the City is left out.
      >
      > We have launched a Common Online Charter School Application, located on the New York City Charter School Center�s website at www.nycCharterSchools.org, where parents can learn about and apply to 90 of New York City�s charter schools easily, conveniently, and all from just one application. We�ve also made it available in Spanish, Haitian Creole, French and Arabic (and are working Mandarin.)
      >
      > To support this new common application system we are embarking on a six-week media and community outreach campaign designed to drive parents to our website. The campaign will include a four-week radio advertising campaign with La MEGA/Amor and KISS FM and a targeted outreach and mail campaign to community boards, community-based organizations, pre-school and daycare providers, special needs service providers and advocates, and other nonprofit organizations.
      >
      > Please download the flyer for our campaign. We ask that you distribute this flyer to your constituents via email or social networking sites and your official website. We can also provide you with printed copies. Just let us know if you would like us to mail you some.
      >
      > The campaign will culminate in a Town Hall meeting in mid-March broadcast live on KISS FM, featuring a panel of education experts and community leaders, hosted by Bob Slade as part of the �Open Line� radio show. The audience will include parents, students and other interested community members.
      >
      > Thank you for time and your interest in our campaign. Please let us know how we can facilitate any efforts to distribute information about the Common Online Charter School Application and this campaign. We look forward to working with you on this exciting project! I can be reached at 212-437-8300 for more information.
