The Department of Education has been shuffling plans to move kids from PS 110 to Long Island City’s PS 199 as schools throughout Queens have become overflown. It’s a move that many LIC and Corona parents are not very happy about.
As the city tries to figure out what to do today, we need to figure out what to do in the not too distant future as hundreds of children are becoming of kindergarten age here in Hunters Point, and many parents are understandably worried.
LIC Spot has just gotten word of a Town Hall meeting at PS 1 on Wednesday, October 17th at 7pm. Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer, Assembly woman Cathy Nolan and State Senator Mike Gianaris will be on hand to discuss the situation.
In the meantime, how about investing in home schooling… just in case?
