We all know the devastating effects the sour economy has had on our Public School system.Teachers can't get raises,afternoon school programs have been gutted,music and art appreciation classes cancelled,insufficient number of books to go around,and lack of computers to properly teach all the children.
So with reduced resources.why is it that I'm thwarted from ice skating at the WORLD ICE ARENA in Flushing Park because 3-5 school buses arrive at the park 4-5 days a week?
Limited open swim time is scheduled in the AQUATIC CENTER at the same facility because they provide large number of school children to attend.Today I went to the AMC theater on 42nd street in NYC only to find that there was a school outing of children in the lobby.
One day I asked a school teacher why they don't take the kids to a museum,She replied" they won't go.'.They won't go?My grand child can/t go outside when it's warm because the principal say she doesn't have the staff to properly watch the children.
Where is the money coming from to pay for the school buses?For every day spent at an amusement facility the school year should be extended one day.My tax dollars are for teachers to teach not to be chaperons for entertaining kids.
So Mr Walcott tell us how much money is spent for entertaining and not for teaching?
