Inside Colocation

The public school where I've been teaching for the last 8 years has been targeted for a "colocation" with a corporate-model charter school. Most people, including me, don't know what a colocation looks like, though we've heard bleak stories. I've started this blog to document it as best I can.
This is what a classroom looks like when it’s ready to move to make room for a charter school to move in. The last three days of the year were spent packing instead of planning. And it’s undetermined whether there will be per session funds available to pay teachers to unpack, which as you can imagine, will be a hugely time consuming job.
