Bronx BP Opposes BCC's Decision To Evict School

Here's a letter Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr. sent the president of Bronx Community College last week, asking her to reconsider plans to evict University Heights Secondary School from one of the college's buildings.

Diaz wrote, in part:

"[Moving the school] would not only have a negative effect on current and future students at school but would also put a stop to an educational partnership that serves as a shining example of one of the best methods in improving students outcomes and lives."
The college says it needs the extra classroom space to cope with rising enrollment; teachers, parents and students at the high school want to stay where they are, believing a move will hurt students' grades.
