BROOKLYN - The Department of Education (DOE) voted once again on more school changes for some Brooklyn students.
The Panel for Educational Policy decided whether to co-locate the New American Academy Charter at the Tilden High School campus in East Flatbush. The elementary school would become the fourth school to be housed at that location.
Teachers, parents and students are against the move, arguing that it would double class sizes, but education officials insist the building is only at half-capacity. Others worry about placing elementary kids in the same school as high school students.
The panel voted Wednesday night at the Brooklyn Technical High School in Fort Greene. Voting results are expected Thursday morning.
