Protesters Oppose Opening of Charter School in Williamsburg

Protestors demonstrate outside the Panel for Educational Policy's meeting on Mar. 1, 2012 at Brooklyn Technical High School. The protest was organized by the Southside Community Schools Coalition, which opposes the opening of a Success Academy charter school in Williamsburg. The puppets held by Aristides, a 9th grader at Lyons Community School, point to the fact that the mayor-controlled PEP has never voted against a city proposal.
