New York City charter school leaders are planning a massive rally at the state Capitol next Tuesday, as they pivot their advocacy to Albany after failing to make progress with the de Blasio administration.
About 2,000 students and parents from New York City and upstate charters are expected to attend the rally on March 4.
Eva Moskowitz's Success Academies will be closed on Tuesday and students and parents will be bused to Albany for the rally.
Buses will be organized by grade and will leave the city's 22 Success Academies at 7:15 a.m.
Success instructors will teach lessons on "civics, think mastery and other subjects" on the bus, according to a flier distributed to parents that was obtained by Capital. No classes will be offered at the Success campuses on that day.
As you can see from the Capital NY piece, parents need not fear students will lose out on the day's lessons - they'll be taught "think mastery" on the buses on the way up to Eva's photo op.
