After-School Programs Threatened

If you haven't read it yet, check out David Gonzalez's story in the Times about a pending cut in after-school programs statewide come September. He mentions Norwood's own PS/MS 20 as an example of a school facing this grim reality.

The Daily News had a story about this last week, while the Post wrote about this in February. Both stories use MS 206, also in our coverage area, as an example. Both use 206 Principal David Neering as a source speaking out against the cuts.

This is terrible news in the West Bronx, where after-school programs are already few and far between. In fact, there's been much talk from local politicians lately about the need for additional after-school programs as a means to counteract youth violence and gang activity.
