City OKs Layoffs Of High School Parent Coordinators is the title of a New York City online video and article that appeared today.
Here’s how it begins:
Testifying before the City Council Monday, Schools Chancellor Joel Klein said he will allow school principals to lay off parent coordinators and abolish the position as a way to combat the city’s money woes.
In 2003, Mayor Michael Bloomberg started mandating schools have them, as one of his first education reforms. His administration has defended the position as integral in parent engagement and outreach efforts.
