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.
The above is an excerpt from a pro-Success Academy article/advertisement in the NY Post, along with a photo of the “dingy storage area” referred to, that was, in actuality, a fully functioning high school. The basement classrooms used to house about 300 high school students but were taken from us on the pretense of being “underutilized.” Now they house about 60 kindergarten students, with classrooms being left entirely empty for much of the day. The greenhouse mentioned was, by the way, a center of great activity for all of our students on Earth Day and many culinary students throughout the year.

    Gross. How does the NY Post even consider itself a newspaper?
