Today is the last day of school for most New York City students. Most private schools have been out for a little while now, and high school students have been on a reduced, Regents exam schedule for the last two weeks. But for hundreds of thousands of children, as well as for every public school teacher, today is it.
Some hardy families will spend the afternoon of the last day of school working to make sure the schools have enough money next year. They’ll be holding a major rally and press conference on the steps of City Hall starting at 3:30 p.m. today.
