Packing them in at Woodside school
From the Daily News:
A western Queens parents group plans to push the city to build additions at two overcrowded elementary schools where the the lack of space is so severe that students are studying in hallways or in a leaky modular unit.
Community Education Council District 30 will present its concerns about Public School 11, in Woodside, and PS 2, in Jackson Heights, to the city on Jan. 6 in its annual recommendations to the School Construction Authority.
But the city has no plans for any “significant” building additions at this time, a Department of Education official said.
It’s gotten so bad that PS 11 received a city Buildings Department violation this year for obstructing hallways with tables and chairs after a leak in a classroom was reported, a city education department official confirmed.
