Finally--Some Good News

The UFT and NAACP have prevailed in their lawsuit, and the January 26th school closings have been declared null and void.  The city will appeal, and Bloomberg will drag his feet, but let's hope someone drags him by said feet kicking and screaming to follow the decision.

It ain't over till it's over, but I'm very happy to read this.

Update:  Klein says no students were assigned to the closed schools, but that, if the ruling prevails. students who selected them might get letters offering them as alternatives.  Sounds like a potentially cute way for him to weasel out of the ruling.

What if you open a school and nobody comes?  Perhaps it doesn't exist.  Keep a close eye on the Tweed tricksters.
