Please join Council Member James on the steps of City Hall on March 14th at 1:00 pm to call on the SUNY Charter Schools Institute, the Board of Trustees of Success Academy and the Department of Education to immediately investigate student suspensions at Success Academy Schools. A 6 year old Charter school student with an IEP received 20 suspensions in a single school year (see attached press release). Please share this press release with others, look forward to seeing you Thursday.
“This is an outrageous mistreatment of this child and his family,” said Council Member James. “Children with special needs are entitled to services whether they attend traditional public schools or charter schools. To punish a child and keep him from the classroom because the resources are not available to help him demonstrates a shocking degree of indifference to his education.”
