BK parents rally to rid schools of toxic lights

BAYCHESTER - Brooklyn parents rallied this morning in an effort to speed up repairs at city schools.

The group, which gathered at P.S. 346, demanded the Department of Education replace light fixtures that contain a type of toxin called PCB immediately.

The DOE notified nearly 500 schools and said the lights would be removed at some point within the next nine years.
