From Brownstoner Queens:
Just a few hours ago, local pols, the School Construction Authority and IS 125 students gathered to announce the new 600-seat annex slated for the intermediate school in Woodside. The new annex will replace the dilapidated trailers which are currently located on the playground. The expansion will help alleviate overcrowding, as the school is at 123 percent capacity.
So the DOH complains that kids these days are out of shape, yet DOE finds it acceptable to build on top of schoolyards. And EDC gives vacant land away to developers for $1 so they can build more housing that will cause more overcrowding at local schools, while SCA buys occupied land for millions of dollars to demolish existing structures and site new schools. The lunatics have taken over the asylum, and idiot community members smile for the cameras next to tweeder pols, because all of this is apparently a good thing.
