Protesters demand good schools in city’s poor neighborhoods


Protesters mobbed the steps of City Hall on Tuesday to call for new schools Chancellor Richard Carranza to break from Mayor de Blasio and upend the status quo by bringing good public schools to the city’s poorest neighborhoods.


The demonstration organized by pro-charter group StudentsFirstNY drew about 100 parents, despite the rain.


“Chancellor Carranza, parents are ready for a change. Don’t let us down,” said Shelevya Pearson of Brownsville in Brooklyn.


Carranza, 51, declined to comment on the matter.

Education Department spokeswoman Toya Holness said city schools are the strongest they’ve ever been.
