BROOKLYN -- Today, State Senator Daniel Squadron released the following statement in response to the NYC Department of Education's proposal to expand P.S. 8 Robert Fulton to include a middle school:
Last night, DOE answered the calls of the community and formally proposed the expansion of P.S. 8 to include a middle school.
For months, I've worked with parents, P.S. 8 faculty, DOE, Assemblymember Millman and Councilmember Levin to make this proposal a reality.
Providing our community with a high quality middle school is critical to continuing the success of P.S. 8. I urge quick approval of this proposal to get the middle school up and running by next school year and ensure that our kids get the the quality education they deserve.
