Last week, a bunch of parents were up in arms after a rezoning proposal threatened to keep some of their kids from attending highly sought-after Park Slope schools by way of geographical re-mapping. The Community Education Council (CEC) has over a month to decide whether or not to move forward with the rezoning, and in the meantime, at least one group has formed in protest.
"The Coalition of Residents for Fair Rezoning is a grassroots effort to protect the future of Brooklyn's children and our community. The current DOE proposal seeks to rezone the boundaries of PS321, PS39, PS107, and PS10 in an unfair, elitist, and ineffective manner." - Via the group's Facebook page.
The mission statement is lengthy, but describes in detail possible holes in the current rezoning plan, and how it will affect the community as a whole. So if you want to stay up to date on rezoning news, or just have an outlet to bitch about how you paid $2.5M for a brownstone that may not fall in P.S. 321's boundaries by the time your toddler's old enough for school, consider liking then bookmarking the group's Facebook page.
