Public Meeting On Controversial Cobble Hill Charter School

By Mary Frost

The planned opening of a charter school called Success Academy Cobble Hill is raising questions among parents of public schools in District 15, who worry about the school being “co-located” inside an existing public school.

Former city councilwoman Eva S. Moskowitz, who heads the Success Academy chain, will be attending an information session for parents on Saturday, Oct. 29 at noon at Carroll Gardens Public Library, 396 Clinton St. (between Sackett and Union streets). Moskowitz will speak about curriculum and the reasons behind the move to Cobble Hill. There will also be time for parents to have questions about the school answered.

Opponents of charter schools in general say that the schools drain investment and support from existing public schools and are given more than their fair share of resources when they share a school’s building.
