The NYC BOE Posts New Regulations That Further Their Agenda To Remove Constitutional Rights From the Public

I chose the title of this posting because the publication of the new regulations below shows how the New York City Board of Education is worried that their reforms are not going as smoothly as planned. The foundation of everything that Joel Klein does is the removal of relevant and meaningful opposition to any changes that he and Mayor Bloomberg design for New York City's public schools. The only way that all "meaningful" opposition to their reforms can happen is by removing the right to vote from the general public.

As you read the regulations below, think about who the "selectors" are who pick the CEC members. Why cant the general public or the general public school community vote for members of the CEC? Because the Bloomberg/Klein regime cannot honor the wishes of the public, they must have only puppets on any panel that has a voice that they must pretend to hear.

I suggest that another rally of 3000 people go to the February 10 meeting and bring media, then use the information to stop the cartel.

We can do this, NYC!
