New York parents may soon have a new advocacy group to help them press for change in the city schools, led by Public Advocate Bill de Blasio.
De Blasio announced the group, which will be known as the “Parent Advocate Coordinating Team,” or PACT, at a town hall forum on education his office held last night in downtown Brooklyn. The public advocate’s staff began collecting contact information for parents last night, and de Blasio said that he hoped to mobilize parents across the city.
