BK teachers, students, parents rally against child care cuts
(04/27/12) BROOKLYN – Teachers, students, parents and elected officials rallied today to fight cuts to child care and after-school programs.
Those at the rally are fighting to save places like the United Community Center in East New York, which found out yesterday that it did not receive an award letter from the city. That means its after-school program is slated to close. Ralliers are demanding that Mayor Michael Bloomberg restore funding in his proposed budget. Parents say they need to work and rely on the child care and after-school program
