Censorship at the Panel For Educational Policy

Now we can prove censorship.

from Francesco Portelos:

NYCDOE Curbs Public Speaking at Panel Meetings.

See letter sent by DTOE and Solidarity Caucus member to NYC Council:
Councilwoman Viverito,
The NYCDOE school community, comprised of educators, students, parents and concerned citizens, are very grateful the NYC Council mandates that all NYCDOE Panel for Education Policy meetings are video recorded and live streamed. It brought us one big step closer to accountability, involvement and transparency. However, we are very disheartened to now see that the last three or four meetings include disruption by the panel and curbing of public speeches. Are we to understand that public speaking is allowed, but they can be selective of the content?
Please see the 39:00 minute mark on the official DOE December 18, 2014 video posted here:
​Notice how the audio has also been removed by the DOE effectively muzzling the public?​ See how a citizen was stopped from raising concerns about workplace bullying and was then removed?
​Can you please address this?
