LIU STATEMENT ON SCHOOL CLOSURES AND CO-LOCATIONS
NEW YORK, N.Y. – Comptroller John C. Liu stated the following today after speaking at a press conference of the Alliance for Quality Education:
“For the past year, I’ve called for a moratorium of school closures and co-locations, which are deeply disruptive to schools and communities and which seem to achieve little other than playing a shell game with schoolkids and teachers. The DOE’s closure and co-location policies are so deeply flawed that they need to be completely re-evaluated before they can continue.”
