Paul Robeson School Walkout

via OccupyTVNY.org


On May 1, 2012, nearly 100 students walked out of Paul Robeson HS in Crown Heights, Brooklyn in solidarity with Occupy Wall Street's call for #MayDay and in protest of the DOE's policies at their school. They were joined by students at several other schools when they held a teach-in with community leaders at nearby Fort Greene Park.

This summer, public education advocates and recent graduates from the school are launching the Paul Robeson Freedom School: PaulRobesonFreedomSchool.org
