The Russell Sage Junior High School 190 Beacon Program, which is on the chopping block and could close by July 2012, is gaining support from a children’s advocacy group in hopes that the program’s doors could remain open.
The Campaign for Children became involved last Friday, urging Mayor Michael Bloomberg to reconsider his plans to cut not just the J.H.S. 190-based beacon program, but another at M.S. 158 in Queens, and five others across the city.
