Fight to keep Grady H.S. open continues
Brooklyn's William Grady High School is set to close at the end of this school year, but students, parents and teachers say they aren't going down without a fight.
A rally was held yesterday over Department of Education (DOE) plans to shutter the Brighton Beach trade school and reopen it in July under a new name.
Parents argue that students have improved the overall school grade to a "B" this year, but DOE officials say that replacing the school with a new one will improve education quality in the building.
