In New York City, what charter schools want, charter schools get, even the destruction of a public school library.

Don't miss this video, even though it will break your heart. A New York City librarian organizes talented volunteers to transform a library, but the public school students don't get to use it.

Letters to Joel Klein would be in order, asking why he is allowing this charter school to break NY State Law about student access to libraries. You will see law references in the librarian's video.
