A student’s MTA protest yields to broader education critique

Jaritza Geigel, a student organizer with Make the Road New York and the Urban Youth Collaborative, led a walkout to protest cuts to student subway access.

As part of a blog post about the walkout for EdVox, Jaritza also added this overall sense of the state of education in the city:

We are done having Mayor Bloomberg close down schools, which only increase over-crowding; we are done having funds removed overnight from our schools; we are done seeing valuable teachers laid off; we are done being treated like criminals; and we will not tolerate the mayor’s silence on this issue.
