As the Department of Education tries to remove classroom trailers from school yards, P.S. 144 in Forest Hills has just received a new one.
But the trailer, which was fought for by local parents and elected officials, is a welcome addition to the school to help with overcrowding while keeping kids in their neighborhoods. It will house fifth graders and help save two pre-k classes that faced cuts.
"It is thrilling to walk through the gates of P.S. 144 and see the school trailer in the schoolyard," said Pam Chowayou, one of the parents who advocated for it. "That trailer represents the culmination of our community's efforts to keep our pre-k and kindergarten kids at their locally zoned schools this fall."
Hmmm... is that what it represents? Seems to me it represents a sanctuary city with no growth planning.
