NYC Public Forum on School Governance-
History First

September 17 at Murry Bergtraum High School- Manhattan

Below is an hour+ long video where panelists Diane Ravitch, historian and critic, Jitu Weusi, educationactivist and former teacher as well as one of the organizers of the Ocean Hill-Brownsville struggle for Community Control, Betty Rosa, former principal and superintendent of District 8 in the Bronx and now a Regent. The panelists not only give us some great historical insights, but also begin to address the horrendous Bloomberg-Klein mayoral control policies and practices.

The session was moderated by Pedro Noguera of NYU.
